A loan of $3,050 helped to purchase and install a heating system for his greenhouses.

Sergei's story

Sergei worked his entire life as a fisherman. At home, he raised vegetables for his family with the help of his wife and son. Two years ago their family suffered a tragedy: his wife left him for another man. This was very difficult to live through, but his son remained with him and was a excellent source of support. Sergei is an excellent father and his son tries to emulate him in everything, and is in the very same business. Together, they decided to develop their farming business.

This year Sergei and his son raised an excellent crop of tomatoes. The tomatoes were very large and were notable for their quality. Now, Sergei has decided to install a heating system in the greenhouses so they will be able to plant their seedlings earlier in the year. For this reason he has applied for a loan. With a loan of 25,000 hryvni (UAH), next year Sergei will be able to reap the harvest earlier and to sell it for a higher price.
