A loan of $2,875 helped to install heating in his greenhouses.

Alexander's story

Alexander used his last Kiva loan to build a large greenhouse on a newly-acquired plot of land. This year, his income increased somewhat. He was able to earn 85,000 hryvnia for his family.

However, a new expense has appeared: Alexander's wife was unexpectedly injured when her shoulder muscle ruptured. She has had several operations and is now going through rehabilitation.

Alexander is requesting additional financial assistance, this time in the amount of 23,000 hryvnia, to install heating in his greenhouses. Specifically, he plans to use 16,000 hryvnia to acquire a furnace, and 7,000 hryvnia for hoses and heating pipes. Once the greenhouses are successfully heated, Alexander will be able to start selling his early-season vegetables at higher prices.
