Dmitriy's story

Dmitriy earns a living by growing vegetables in greenhouses in the village of Gladkovka. He has been involved in this business for 21 years now. On a plot of land of 33 are (1 are is equal to 100 square meters), he grows 6,000 early and late tomato plants, 3,000 cucumber plants, 1 tonne of radishes, and 3,000 pepper plants. Dmitriy is now approaching Kiva for a second loan of 20,000 Ukrainian Hryvnya so he can buy plastic covering, fertilizers, and seeds, and to begin heating his greenhouses in order to prepare them for the growing season. He plans to use the profit generated by this loan to re-invest into his business and gradually develop it further.
