There are times when Alexander has a difficult time, because he cannot find demand for his products and he does not have anyone to sell them to, then he sells the vegetables and fruits at a lower price to the local canning plant.

Alexander plans to use the resources he gets from KIVA, 10,000 hryvnia, in order to open a vegetable store.
