Vitaliy's story

Vitaliy lives in the village Privetnoye. He works with agriculture together with his family. He has a wife and two sons. On his 45 acres of land Vitaliy grows vegetables: 5 000 tomatoes, 20 000 cabbage bushes, 10 000 onions and 15 000 peppers.

Vitaliy has worked with vegetable farming for 10 years. Up until now he has invested around 60 000 hryvnia in the farm. He and his family live off their business. The more money they invest in the maintenance of greenhouses and care for crops, the better and earlier they get their crops.

Vitaliy turned to Kiva for a loan in the amount of 15 000 hrvynia in order to buy seeds, tape, fertilizer, agricultural fabric (to cover plants to protect them from insects, prevent weeds etc), and also to install heating in the greenhouses and cover transportation costs associated with the business.
