A loan of $1,850 helped to fix his greenhouses, and to buy some seeds and fuel for heating.

Fedor's story

Fedor is an entrepreneur from Kamenka-Dneprovskaya. He grows vegetables in greenhouses and also performs welding jobs. Last year he used his loan received from Kiva to buy plastic sheeting and seeds. Fedor had a good harvest. In addition, he received a lot of orders for welding jobs, which allowed him to make some additional income. At the end of the season Fedor did some calculations and saw that income from welding was higher, but income from his greenhouse - less than expected.

This year, Fedor is requesting a loan to repair his greenhouses, as well as to buy seeds and fuel for heating. He plans to redesign a greenhouse (making it more frost-resistant), so that he will be able to harvest earlier and, as a result, to increase his income.

There has been a minor change in Fedor's family situation: his two daughters have entered first grade. Fedor and his wife now help them with their homework.
