A loan of $4,575 helped to purchase film, seeds and fertilizer for greenhouses.

Vasiliy's story

Vasiliy will remember spring 2013 for a long time. He installed heating in his greenhouses and expected a harvest much earlier. It all turned out differently. The heating hoses that he purchased were of low quality, and so he had to transplant the seedlings twice. He had additional expenses of new hoses and seedlings.

He has a big farm and a lot of greenhouses, which he built. He is very hardworking, serious about his business and thus it grew quickly. This year Vasiliy applied for a loan on the advice of his friends. The funds will enable him to buy seeds, films and fertilizer for the new season. He hopes to get a good harvest as his business provides his family's only income.
