For many years already, Igor has been in the business of growing determinant tomatoes and cucumbers, as well as growing seedlings for sale. At first, Igor and his friends rented a car and transported their products to Russia. With the earned money, he bought land and built greenhouses. Now he doesn't have to travel as far, as customers come to meet him at his house. He has loyal customers. Over the last few years, Igor has gained a lot of experience. His crops are of an especially high quality and he takes pride in them.

However, this year, Igor has been unlucky. In Autumn of last year, he installed heating in all of his greenhouses. He made a big investment in this. In the Spring, when everything has been planted, it became apparent that he had bought poor-quality tubing. As a result, the first four clusters of tomatoes had been lost, and with them, his main source of profit. This is why Igor is for the first time applying for a loan. With the received loan, he plans to buy new tubes from a reputable manufacturer as well as buy a plastic cover and seeds. "I am grateful for the opportunity to receive assistance for my business." Igor hopes to fix the heating system and receive a wonderful harvest this season.

Игорь уже много лет занимается выращиванием высокорослых помидор, огурцов и также выращивает рассаду на продажу. Вначале Игорь с друзьями нанимали машину и возили свою продукцию в Россию, на заработанные средства покупал землю, строил теплицы. Сейчас ему уже не нужно ехать далеко, теперь покупатели приезжают к нему домой, есть и постоянные покупатели. За эти года Игорь приобрел хороший опыт, его продукция отличается качеством и этим он гордится.

Но этот год для Игоря стал не удачным. Осенью прошлого года он провел отопление во все теплицы и на это потребовались большие вложения. Весной, когда все было посажено, обнаружилось, что он приобрел не качественные шланги. В результате первые четыре кисти на помидорах были потеряны, а от них основная прибыль. Поэтому Игорь в первый раз обратился за кредитом. На полученные средства он планирует приобрести новые шланги от надежного производителя, а также купит пленку и семена. «Я благодарен за возможность получить помощь для моего бизнеса». Игорь надеется исправить отопление и получить замечательный урожай в этом сезоне.
