Ruslan
Ruslan lives in the village of Maliye Kopani, where he is a market gardener. Ruslan has a wife and an 8 year old daughter, Snezhanna. On 1.35 ha, he grows 5,000 bushes of early tomatoes, 4,500 cucumbers, 3 tons of potatoes, 2 tons of radishes, and 15,000 pepper bushes. So far, Ruslan has been farming for 17 years. He has invested substantial money in his farm, but he isn't thinking about resting on his laurels.

Ruslan needs help with additional financing to buy 7,000 hryven worth of greenhouse film, 8,000 hryven worth of seed, 3,000 hryven worth of fertilizer, as well as 2,000 hryven for making improvements to his greenhouses before the new season. Ruslan is hoping to make a substantial investment in his farming business with the money he receives through Kiva and to earn a well-deserved profit from the successful sale of the vegetables he'll grow.
