Vladimir has been growing vegetables in greenhouses on his plot in Velikaya Znamenka for 18 years. His primary crops are tomatoes, cucumbers, and radishes.

Vladimir worked in Kiev for six years as a crane operator. On vacations and days off he would go home and work in the garden. The job didn't last and Vladimir decided to farm full time. Now he has more time for his children and greenhouses.

Vladimir has extra land, so he wants to build a new greenhouse in the fall. He needs a loan for fertilizer (3000 Hryvnia), plastic sheeting (2500 Hryvnia), seeds (5000 Hryvnia), and a rototiller for tillage (4500 Hryvnia).

Владимир занимается выращиванием овощей в теплицах на своем участке с В-Знаменка уже 18 лет. Основные культуры - помидоры, огурцы, редис.

Шесть лет Владимир работал в Киеве крановщиком. В отпуске и на выходные приезжал и трудился на огороде у себя дома. Работы в Киеве не стало и Владимир решил занятся сельски хозяйством - как основным источником дохода. Теперь Владимир уделяет больше времени детям и своим теплицам.

У Владимира много земли, поэтому он хочет построить еще одну теплицу осенью. Кредит понадобился для приобретения удобрений (3000 гривен), пленки (2500 гривен), семян (5000 гривен), мотоблок для вспашки (4500 грн)
