Лёва вместе с женой уже 12 лет занимается выращиванием огурцов и помидор в теплице. У него есть арендованный участок земли в селе Водяное. До этого Лёва жил в Грузии, работал строителем. В Украину переехал с семьей, потому что здесь есть работа и, значит, возможность прокормить семью. Сейчас ему нравится заниматься сельским хозяйством, иногда он подрабатывает, делая ремонты.
Лёва обратился за дополнительной финансовой помощью в размере 24 000 гривен для того, чтобы приобрести котёл и установить отопление в теплице, что значительно ускорит темпы созревания овощей в тепличных условиях. Со временем Лёва хотел бы построить новый дом для своей семьи
