Alexander has been cultivating tomatoes and cucumbers on his plot of land in the village of Vodyanoye for the past 16 years. He lives with his wife and daughter in their own house. The family owns two plots of land.

Recently, a certain pattern has developed in the farming business - the price of vegetables falls sharply in summer. For this reason, Alexander has decided to install heating in his greenhouses so as to be able to start selling his produce in spring at better prices. In addition, he needs to purchase coal and plastic covering for greenhouse insulation.

Alexander is a hard-working and sociable person. His future plans include installation of heating systems in his new greenhouses, construction of a new greenhouse, and completion of repairs in his home.

Последнее время в этом бизнесе появилась такая тенденция - летом резко падает цена на овощи. Поэтому Александр решил следать отопление,чтобы начинать торговать еще весной по более высокой цене. Ему нужно докупить уголь и пленку для утепления.
