Pavel's story

Pavel is married with an eight-year-old son Daniel. He lives in Kamenka. Pavel grows tomatoes for further wholesale and retail sale in different regions of Ukraine. He grows 8,000 tall-grown tomatoes every year. Pavel has eight big greenhouses. He has been growing vegetables for 13 years. Pavel has invested 180,000 UAH in his business. His annual expenses on seeds and polyethylene film amount to 40,000 UAH.

Pavel is seeking a loan of 15,000 UAH to purchase coal for heating in greenhouses, fertilizers and polyethylene film, as well as to install a dripping irrigation system in his greenhouses. Pavel already has plastic polyethylene film for the first protection layer of his greenhouses. However, in Ukraine temperatures usually drop below freezing in early spring, which could ruin his crops. Therefore, Pavel needs to buy additional polyethylene film to protect his future crops. Eventually, he is hoping to install heating units in all eight greenhouses to ensure better protection of his vegetables and minimize costs.
