Viktor is married, with a son and a daughter. He is a farmer in the town of Vodyanoye, in a predominantly agricultural region of Ukraine. There are very few employment options there, which is why many people in town are struggling to survive. Viktor was one of them, but he managed to launch a small agricultural venture 16 years ago. Since then, his greenhouse business has grown and expanded to a scale Viktor couldn’t even think of. Currently, Viktor owns four spacious greenhouses. He plants 5,000 tomatoes every year. He has 52,000 Grivnyas invested in this business.

Viktor is seeking a loan of 12,000 Grivnyas to purchase tomato seeds. Last year Viktor tried planting tall-grown tomatoes and was very satisfied with quality and quantity of his harvest. Therefore, he is hoping to plant solely tall-grown tomatoes this farming season, thus ensuring a stable income for himself and his family. Viktor is hoping to save some money and reinvest it in much-needed reconstruction of two of his greenhouses that are old and need to be refurbished.
