A loan of $2,975 helped to build a new greenhouse.

Alexei's story

Alexei has been growing tomatoes, cucumbers and radishes in greenhouses in the village of Vodyanoye since he was 9 years old. He lives with his wife and two children in his house. Alexei is a hardworking, calm, steady person and a good farmer.

In this area, growing vegetables in greenhouses is the main type of business for many and in the summer there is a lot of competition. Alexei installed heating in his greenhouses in order to get an earlier harvest and to start selling earlier.

Recently Alexei bought a plot of land nearby and decided to build two greenhouses there. He built one but does not have enough personal funds for the other. Alexei is asking for a loan of 24,000 hryvnia.

Alexei has expansion plans. He plans to build two more greenhouses and install heating there. Then he would like to purchase more land for expansion.
