A loan of $3,000 helped purchase and install heaters in his greenhouses.


Lyova's story

For the past twelve years, Lyova and his wife have been growing cucumbers and tomatoes in greenhouses. He has rented a plot of land in the village of Vodyanoye. Before that, Lyova lived in Georgia where he worked as a builder. He moved his family to Ukraine where he could work and feed his family. Now he likes to farm. He sometimes moonlights as a builder, doing renovations.

Lyova has asked for financial assistance of 24,000 hryvnia to purchase and install heaters in the greenhouses, which will speed the growth of vegetables in the greenhouses. Over time, Lyova would like to build a new house for his family
