A loan of $1,875 helped to install heating in the greenhouses.


Igor's story

Igor wants to install heating in his greenhouses, but he cannot finance the repairs himself. He is asking for a loan of 15,000 griven. Heated greenhouses will allow Igor to get his harvest faster and be able to sell it for a higher price. Previously Igor had taken out a loan to build a greenhouse addition for growing seedlings.

Igor's business has been expanding. Two years ago his annual farming profits were only 36,000 griven. Since that he has began growing vegetables on a professional scale by planting better, more expensive varieties and using new fertilizer mixes. As a result his annual profits doubled. Igor has used the profits to put a new fence and gate around his house, perform home improvements and repairs his car.
