Vitaliy's story

Vitaliy, his wife and their 14-year-old son live in Vodyanoye, where he grows spring vegetables, tomatoes and radishes. Vitaliy has 6 large greenhouses and two greenhouses for seedlings. 70,000 hryvnia have been invested into the farm. Vitaliy has been farming for 6 years. His annual expenditures on seeds and plastic greenhouse covering amount to 35,000 hryvnia. Now he needs 20,000 hryvnia to purchase new plastic covering and other materials for the greenhouses. Vitaliy is planning to install heating in his greenhouses, and therefore needs the additional funds.

Vitaliy's business is developing well. Last year, heavy snowfalls prevented him from growing a good crop. However, Vitaliy is not giving up and this year has begun constructing two new greenhouses in order to expand his business.
