A loan of $2,600 helped to purchase vegetables and watermelons.


Vladimir's story

Vladimir is from Khoost. He has been selling fruits and vegetables for 13 years. Vladimir buys produce on the wholesale market and then transports it to small stores. In addition, he sells from his home, and also at the market in a residential neighborhood. He rents a storage facility in that part of the city. Vladimir's primary sales are of potatoes and cabbage, especially just before the onset of winter. He is planning to invest 21,000 hryvnia in buying produce for food preservation and also watermelons to sell. He hopes to invest part of the income earned into rebuilding his house to expand the living space for his son's family when the son marries.
