Alexander, his wife and their two children live in the village of Vodyanoye. He grows tomatoes, cucumbers and radishes. Alexander has five large greenhouses and two separate ones for seedlings. All the greenhouses are heated. Alexander has been growing vegetables for ten years and has approximately 200,000 Ukrainian hryvnias (UAH) invested in the business. He spends about 84,000 UAH annually on seeds and polyethylene sheeting to insulate the greenhouses. Alexander needs another 20,000 UAH to purchase coal to keep the greenhouses heated. He has set up a heating system in each greenhouse, but it requires a lot of coal, which is getting more and more expensive each year in Ukraine. Alexander believes there is a good future for his business in this region of the country. Near his home there are two plots of land for sale. Alexander hopes to purchase the land for his business and to continue expanding.

Александр с женой и двумя детьми живет в селе Водяное. Он выращивает помидоры, огурцы, редис. У Александра есть 5 больших теплиц и 2 отдельные теплицы под рассаду, все под отоплением. Он занимается выращиванием овощей уже 10 лет. В хозяйство вложено около 200 000 гривен. Ежегодно приходится тратить около 84 000 гривен на семена и полиэтиленовую пленку для утепления теплиц.

Дополнительные средства в размере 20 000 гривен Александру необходимы для того, чтобы закупить уголь для отопления теплиц. У него установлена система отопления в каждой из теплиц, но она потребляет много угля, который с каждым годом только дорожает в Украине. Александр видит перспективу для своего бизнеса в этом регионе страны. Рядом с его домом продаются два земельных участка. Он хочет купить их под свой бизнес и расширяться дальше.
