Arthur is married with a 6-year-old daughter, Karina. He lives in Kamenka. Arthur grows early spring vegetables to support himself and his family. He owns 2 greenhouses. Arthur launched this farming enterprise 10 years ago and has invested 50,000 Grivnyas in this business. His annual expenses for seeds and plastic film amount to 23,000 Grivnyas.

Arthur is seeking a loan of 10,000 Grivnyas to purchase and plant 3,500 tomato seedlings which are 3.5 Grivnyas per piece. His own greenhouses don’t have a heating system yet which is why Arthur didn’t take risks growing seedlings in his own greenhouses. Next year he is hoping to install heating units in the greenhouses. Arthur is very enterprising. He doesn’t want to stop at what he has achieved. He is planning to continue growing his business in the future.
