A loan of $2,525 helped install heating in greenhouses.


Sergei's story

Sergei is married with an 8-year-old son and 12-year-old daughter. The whole family lives in Kamenka. For the last six years, Sergei has been engaged in the growing of early tomatoes and cucumbers. He has six large greenhouses. Annually, he spends about 45,000 hryvnia on seeds and plastic sheeting. There is around 100,000 hryvnia invested in the enterprise as a whole.

Sergei plans to use the loan of 20,000 hryvnia to install heating in the greenhouses. Moreover, Sergei is fastening a second layer of film to warm the greenhouses in a better manner to have the possibility in time to plant vegetables in sufficient quantities and to obtain corresponding profits.

Sergei very much hopes to gain additional profit from his farming business in order next year to finish repairs on his home, which has long been in need of repair.
