Gerasim is also a perfect and skilled farmer. He has five beehives and he has a large fruit garden, where he raises the sweetest and the tastiest persimmons and dewberries. He says that the sale of his fruit harvest and the honey that his bees give brings a decent income for his family. Thanks to it, he managed to buy a flat and furniture for his younger son. The vegetables that he cultivates on his plot of land, including cucumbers, tomatoes, beans, and potatoes are mainly for the family’s everyday use.
Gerasim runs his farming with great pleasure and wants to make it bigger. He has asked for this loan because he wants to buy two bee hives and three piglets, and he will use the leftover money to organize spring sowing activities.
