Alexander's story

Alexander lives and works in Vodyanoye. He has his own vegetable farm. He has 3 pieces of land. He rents out the first piece. He has 3 large hothouses on the second piece, and he is building a new hothouse on the third piece. Alexander has been growing vegetables for 6 years. He has about 200,000 hryven invested in his farm. His yearly expenses for seed and hothouse film are about 84,000 hryven.

Alexander is planning to invest the funds he receives through Kiva in purchasing coal for heating the hothouses. Recently, Alexander was able to install the necessary heating systems, but now he must constantly buy coal. Alexander looks upon his prospects realistically. He sees that there is the possibility to develop further, to build additional hothouses and continue to expand.
