A loan of $3,650 helped purchase and install a more powerful heater for his greenhouses.

Lyova's story

Lyova was born in Georgia. He worked there as a builder but with every year, it became harder and harder to feed his family. Several years ago, he and his family decided to move to Ukraine to the village of Vodyanoye. Here he began studying agriculture and learned from his relatives how to grow vegetables. Every year, his business grows and now he has several greenhouses already.

Last year, Lyova used a Kiva loan to install a heating system. That being said, he understood that for his quantity of greenhouses he would need a more powerful heater. Lyova is requesting a loan in the amount of 30,000 hryvnia to buy a more powerful boiler heater for his greenhouses. This will help him to plant his seedlings earlier and sell his harvest for a better price.

Lyova has a big family with four children. Now two of his daughters are of marrying age, which is why he is trying with all of his strength and finances to invest in his business in order to help his children start their own, individual lives.
