Victor's story

Victor is married and has grown-up sons. Victor lives and works in Privetnoye. He, like many of his fellow villagers, grows early crops such as zucchini, tomatoes, peppers, cabbage and eggplant. On the 144 acres Victor grows 10,000 tomato bushes, 7,000 zucchini, 15,000 peppers, 12,000 cabbages and 12,000 eggplants. Victor has been growing vegetables for 21 years. At this point he has 160,000 hryvna invested in his business.

Victor plans to invest the 20,000 hryvna Kiva loan to buy fertilizer, film, chemicals and seeds for the next agricultural season. Victor hopes to meet the demand of buyers, effectively sell his products and generate additional revenue from the sale of vegetables. He plans to further develop his business as it not only allows him to support his family, but also gives his enormous gratification.
