Alexei's story

Alexei lives in Kamenka Dnieper. He served in Afghanistan, then married and started in his favorite business growing tomatoes and cucumbers. He is experienced in this business, knows how to care for plants and to date has developed quite a large farm. He has five large greenhouses. To develop such a farm he had the help of previous business development loans.

Despite the experience of Alexei's greenhouse business, this year it has failed. Alexei planted a second harvest of cucumbers and the plants were well developed, looked good, and had no signs of trouble. Suddenly, in September, the cold came and there was even frost on the ground, and because of all this the plants died. Alexei suffered a loss, but he did not despair because he knew that he could count on help in the form of a loan with favorable conditions. Alexei is asking for a loan for the amout of 30,000 Hryvnia to buy seeds, fertilizer, and film to make the planting again for the spring season. He believes that this is a temporary difficulty and next year will make every effort to grow a good crop!
