Igor is a farmer in Gladkovka. On one-fifth of a hectare of land, each season he grows 4,000 cucumber plants in greenhouses, as well as 2 tons of early potatoes. Igor has been farming for four years and has invested a significant sum in his farm - around 70,000 hryvnias. His net income amounts to slightly over 3,000 hryvnias.

Igor needs to borrow additional funds totalling 7,000 hryvnias to purchase plastic film for 4,500 hryvnias and re-cover his greenhouses for the new season. The remaining 2,500 hryvnias will be spent on quality seeds from which he will grow sprouts. His business allows Igor to generate enough income to support his family, and this is very important in a region where employment opportunities are often sparse.

Игорь – из Гладковки. Он – фермер. На 20 сотках земли выращивает в теплицах 4 000 кустов огурцов и 2 тонны раннего картофеля за сезон. Сельским хозяйством занимается уже 4 года. В хозяйство вложил немалые деньги – около 70 000 гривен. Чистая прибыль составляет немногим больше 3 000 гривен.

Игорю необходимы дополнительные заемные средства в размере 7 000 гривен для того, чтобы купить полиэтиленовую пленку на сумму в 4 500 гривен и перетянуть ее в теплицах для нового сезона, а также хорошие семена для выращивания рассады на оставшиеся 2 500 гривен. Бизнес позволяет Игорю генерировать средства, чтобы содержать семью и это крайне немаловажно в регионе, где зачастую совсем мало возможностей для трудоустройства.
