Vadim's story

Vadim is married and has a grown son. Vadim and his family live in Privetnoye where he is a market gardener. On 2.7 acres he grows early vegetables including: 10,000 tomato plants, 5,000 squashes, 50,000 peppers, and 70,000 cabbages. Vadim has already been in the farming business for 15 years. There are about 100,000 UAH invested in his farm. The net profit is about 6,000 UAH. Vadim is planning to use the 15,000 UAH loan he receives from Kiva for bulk purchases of seed, plastic film, mineral fertilizers, as well as to build an additional greenhouse. The income earned by the loan proceeds will enable Vadim to support his family and provide them with all the necessities. Note: story is in Russian
