A loan of $2,500 helped to purchase seeds, fertilizers, polythene foil, wood and materials required for greenhouse repair and heating.


Alexei's story

Alexei lives with his wife and two daughters in Gladkovka. He works as a farmer and makes a living by cultivating various crops. He owns 5,000 square meters of land where he grows the following vegetables: 4,000 cucumbers, 4,000 tomato plants and approximately 5 tonnes of potatoes. He's been a farmer for about seven years and his current average profit is 5,600 grivnas.

Alexei needs a loan of 20,000 grivnas in order to purchase seeds, fertilizers, polythene foil, wood and materials required for greenhouse repair and heating.
Fixing up and installing adequate heating within the greenhouses will fundamentally increase the quality of his products, which will result in increased revenues.
