Alexander's story

Alexander lives in the Vodyanoye and is involved in agriculture. He grows early vegetables, specifically tomatoes, cucumbers and radishes, on his plot of land. He has one 14x80 meter greenhouse, two 7x80 meter arched greenhouses and also two seedlings greenhouses. All of them are heated. Alexander has been involved in growing vegetables for 15 years. He has approximately 150 000 hryvnia invested in his business. The annual expenses for seeds and plastic amount to approximately 64 000 hryvnia. Alexander needs a loan in the amount of 22 000 hryvnia to buy coal with 15 000 hryvnia, new plastic to cover the greenhouses with 4 300 hryvnia and a water pump with 2 700 hryvnia. Alexander has potential for growth: he has another plot of land at the end of his farm, where another greenhouse can be built in the future.
