Alexei is married and has a two year old son. He runs a family business growing tomatoes, cucumbers and radishes in greenhouses. His wife and her parents help Alexei with the business.
Alexei started this business seven years ago. Vegetables are in high demand in this area and the business is successful. Recently Alexei bought a second piece of land and put another greenhouse there. He needs a loan of 20,000 UAH to purchase seeds, film and water systems for his greenhouses.
Alexei's goal is to fix his house and improve his family's living conditions.
