Alexei's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to repair his greenhouse, install heating, and buy seeds.
Alexei and his family live in Kamenka, where of the inhabitants are farmers and agricultural workers. Alexei grows tomatoes and radishes. He has three large greenhouses where he grows 3700 tall tomatoes. Alexei has been in business for 22 years. He has about 100,000 hryvnia invested in his small farm. Each year, he spends about 35,000 hryvnia on seeds and plastic sheeting. Alexei plans to invest 20,000 hryvnia in repairing his greenhouses, installing heating, and buying seeds for planting next season. Alexei has enough time to expand his greenhouse to have better quality seedlings next year. Alexis has grown children, and for him as a father, it is important to teach them and to make sure they are set up in life. That is why he is trying to expand the business: if he gets a decent profit, then he can invest in the personal needs of his family. In addition to growing vegetables Alexei is also responsible for the electrical equipment on the farm.
