A loan of $2,750 helped to buy a boiler and pipes for a greenhouse heating system, as well as plastic film and seeds for his greenhouses.

Sergei's story

Sergei used his Kiva funds as intended: he stocked up on plastic film, and it came in handy in the spring when the winds tore the covering off one of his greenhouses and it needed to be replaced quickly. Additionally, Sergei stocked up on coal and fertilizers and, as the result, the season was successful. Furthermore, thanks to the additional profits, Sergei's family was able to carry out substantial repairs in their home, replace windows, install a new toilet and shower, as well as purchase a computer and connect it to the internet.

Sergei needs additional funds in the amount of 22,000 hryvnia in order to install heating in the greenhouse he uses for seedlings. He is planning to purchase a boiler for 3,000 hryvnia and pipes for the heating system for 2,000 hryvina. He would like to use the remaining funds to buy covering for a second greenhouse for 8,000 hryvnia and seeds for 9,000 hryvnia. Sergei understands that he needs to continue developing his business, which is why he wants to buy quality seeds, install double covering on his greenhouses and a heating system in his seedling greenhouse.
