A loan of $3,000 helped to buy film, wire racks, and fertilizer for his greenhouses.

Sergei's story

Sergei and his family live in the village of Vodyanoye. He and his wife have been farming vegetables (mainly cucumbers, tomatoes and radishes) on their own land for five years. Since the business is Sergei's primary source of income, he always invests any extra money in the business and spends all of his time trying to develop it.

Sergei has asked Kiva for a loan of 24,000 hryvnia in order to buy film, and wire racks to finish his greenhouse, and to buy fertilizer to prepare for the season. This year, Sergei hopes to rebuild one greenhouse, and next season he would like to rebuild the second greenhouse. Then, he can leave them be in the winter and only think about heating the greenhouses.
