Alexander is a resident of the village of Vodyanoye, in Ukraine. For many years already, he has been growing vegetables such as radishes, tomatoes, zucchini and parsley on his plot of land. His hardworking wife and daughter help him run the business. Alexander is a good farmer and he loves his work. Next to his house, he has created a beautiful courtyard with a paved driveway, a new vineyard, and a gazebo where it is nice to relax, in the shade, in the summer.

Everything is in order on Alexander's property. He has built seven greenhouses in which he manages to sow crops and get a harvest three times per year. Alexander is very serious about his business. Whenever he learns something new, he tries to apply it to the business. This year, he wants to install a heating system inside his greenhouses, as he has seen how profitable it has been for many of his friends to install heating systems in their own greenhouses.

Alexander is requesting a loan of 40,000 hryvnia. He is ready to start a new season in well-heated greenhouses.

Александр житель села Водяное в Украине. Он уже много лет выращивает овощи на своем участке, такие как редис, помидоры, кабачки и зелень петрушки. В этом ему помогает трудолюбивая жена и дочь. Александр хороший хозяин, любит свое дело. Он сделал красивый двор около своего дома. Забетонировал дорожки, насадил виноградник и летом в его тени приятно отдохнуть в красивой беседке.

На огороде у Александра тоже порядок, построены 7 теплиц. За один год он успевает вырастить и собрать три урожая. Он очень серьезно относится к своему бизнесу, узнает что-то новое и старается применить это в своем хозяйстве. В этом году Александр хочет провести отопление в своих теплицах. Он увидел, что многие знакомые и друзья уже сделали отопление и это очень выгодно. Александр просит предоставить ему кредит на 40,000 гривен. Он планирует начать новый сезон уже в отапливаемых теплицах.
