Vasiliy's story

Vasiliy is from Vinogradovo. He grows potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers and different berries, which he thereafter sells directly from his van at different sales points in the city and area. Vasiliy works alone, he does not have hired workers.

Vasiliy has 1.5 hectares with berries, from which he harvests around 3 tons every season. The whole family - Vasiliy's wife and three children - helps him with the business.

Vasiliy needs 15,000 hryvnia in order to purchase a drip irrigation system and lightweight fabric for covering the field, on which he grows berries. Vasiliy would like to purchase additional land in the future, in order to sow wheat.
