Nikolai's story

Nikolai works with greenhouse farming. Thanks to the previous loan he was able to increase his income and purchase a new car. In addition, Nikolai was able to help his children. Further he started an additional business of manufacturing and selling boilers.

Nikolai have larger plans for the future. He would like to improve the heating in his greenhouses - instead of three small boilers in each greenhouse, he wants to place one large boiler in all greenhouses at once. Nikolai requests a loan in the amount of 20,000 hryvnia for the purchase of charcoal and plastic film for the greenhouses, and further electric power that would provide his home and greenhouses with constant electrical energy (as the electricity in the is village often out).
