A loan of $1,025 helped to buy pipes and coal in order to install heating for greenhouses.

Alexander's story

Alexander used his previous loan for the purchase of plastic, seeds and fertilizers. He now wants to use a Kiva loan in the sum of 8 000 hryvnia to develop his agricultural business. He will invest the received funds into installing heating in his greenhouses, for which he will need to buy pipes and coal. Thanks to the profit received from using the previous loan, Alexander and his family were able to purchase a big refrigerator used to store poultry and meat, and also bought a new television for the family. Besides farming, Alexander is involved in raising broilers and pigs. He acquires 100 chickens every three months, raises and sells them at a market. Thanks to this business, the entire family lives well in the winter.
