Alexander's story

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.
