View original language description ↓
Юрий женат, имеет двоих детей. Юрий вырос в селе и с детства знает что такое ферма. Вот уже 10 лет, как он занимается фермерством самостоятельно – выращивает овощи в тепличных условиях. На данный момент у него есть четыре теплицы для овощей и две для рассады. Данный бизнес очень перспективен для региона, так как есть оптовый рынок сбыта.

Основные затраты приходятся на закупку семян, а также новую пленку для теплиц, которую нужно менять не реже, чем раз в два года. Юрий просит предоставить ему кредит в сумме 15,000 гривен, что поможет ему закупить семена и пленку. Юрий планирует расширять свой бизнес дальше, так как у него есть еще не занятая земля. Также он планирует приобрести новый автомобиль для своей семьи.
