Oleg's story

Oleg is a longtime farmer from Crimea. He is an experienced farmer and he manages his two hectares of land very well. He has been growing wheat, vegetables and beans. Recently, Oleg has found himself in a difficult situation due to the collapse of market prices for vegetables and wheat in Ukraine. Because Oleg is a small farmer, he finds it difficult to absorb the sharp fluctuation in food prices in Ukraine. However, Oleg is determined, and he came up with a plan to begin phasing out vegetables and wheat and begin planting grapes and strawberries. Grapes and strawberries – and fruits in general – have retained a high value on the Ukrainian market and Oleg believes that he can continue to farm if he switches to growing fruit. However, growing grapes and strawberries requires more delicate care. Oleg needs you to help him finance an irrigation system that can help him to promptly water strawberries and grapes which will result in a better crop that will not be lost due to spoilage.

Oleg is married and has two children: a son, who is 5, and daughter, who is 17. Oleg hopes to send his children to university. Oleg's entire family helps work the two hectares of land the family owns. Their land is relatively small, and that is why every crop counts and Oleg cannot afford for any crop to spoil.
