Volodya and his family had a difficult time after leaving their homeland, the Republic of Georgia. It has already been 16 years since they came to Ukraine. Volodya has a wonderful partner in his wife, and they have five children. Volodya worked very hard to feed his family and save money for a good house, since he is after all, the head of the family. It took a while for them to be able to buy a house, and it was a joyful occasion. With the house came land, where Volodya now grows vegetables independently. First he planted tomatoes uncovered, but it didn't bring much profit. He then began to build large, permanent, arched greenhouses. The greenhouses are comfortable to work in, and harvest has significantly increased. Now it is time to think about heating, so Volodya is requesting a loan from Hope Ukraine to buy a complete boiler. Volodya has received loans several time for development of his business, and he is very grateful for the assistance given.

Володе и его семье пришлось не легко, после того как они покинули родину – Грузию. Вот уже 16 лет как они живут на Украине. У Володи очень добрая жена-помощница и пятеро детей.

Володе приходилось много трудиться, чтобы прокормить семью и накопить деньги на хороший дом, ведь он глава семьи. Со временем купили дом и это было очень радостным событием. К дому шла земля, где Володя теперь мог выращивать овощи самостоятельно. Первое время садили помидоры без пленки, но это не приносило большого дохода. Поэтому начали строить большие, капитальные, арочные теплицы. В них удобно трудиться, да и урожай значительно увеличился.

Теперь пришло время подумать об отоплении и поэтому он взял кредит на покупку котла и всех комплектующих к нему в «Надежде Украины». Володя уже несколько раз брал кредиты на развитие своего бизнеса иочень благодарен за оказываемую помощь.
