Dmytryi's business is working with greenhouses, growing tomatoes and cucumbers on his own land in the village of Vodyanoye. This has been his profession for 12 years. He has three plots of land. The income from his garden is around 350,000 griven annually. Dmytryi needs a loan of 24,000 griven to install heating in his greenhouses and to purchase a boiler. Next year, he wants to use his heated greenhouses to plant vegetables earlier. Last year an unfortunate mishap landed Dmytryi in the hospital when his sleeve caught in his motorized ground-tiller. It dragged him along the ground and he hit his head on a pipe and lost consciousness. He woke up in hospital in Kiev. Although he had to spend 60,000 griven on his recovery, he's fortunate to not have any permanent damage. This accident unfortunately happened during the spring, when there was much work to be done in the garden that he was not able to do. Although his friends helped, the crop was too late and Dmytryi had to sell his car. This year is much better. He has purchase another car and continues to work.

Дмитрий занимается тепличным бизнесом, выращивая помидоры и огурцы на своем участке в селе Водяное. В этой сфере он занят уже 12 лет. Имеет три участка земли. Доход с огорода составляет 350 000 гривен.
Дмитрию понадобилась дополнительная финансовая помощь в размере 24 000 гривен для того, чтобы установить отопление в теплицах и приобрести отопительный котел. На следующий год Дмитрий хочет утеплить теплицы, чтобы высаживать овощи еще раньше. В прошлом году с ним случилось несчастье — когда фрезеровал огород, зацепился рукавом за мотофрезу и она потащила его по земле, ударился головой об трубу теплицы, потерял сознание, очнулся уже в больнице в Запорожье. Потратили на лечение 60 000 гривен, хорошо что обошлось без последствий. Авария случилась как раз весной, когда было много работы на огороде, он не мог работать, помогали друзья. Но все равно запоздал урожай, пришлось продавать машину. В этом году уже все нормально, приобрели другое авто, продолжает работать.
