A loan of $3,425 helped to purchase a piece of land to further expand his farming business.

Andrey's story

Andrey has been growing vegetables on his own plot in Vodyanoye for five years. He has nine large, heated greenhouses where he grows tomatoes and cucumbers.

Andrey studied at the Zaporozhye National Technical University, where he received a degree in mechanical engineering. He worked in his specialty for two years, then decided to focus only on agriculture. He lives with his wife, two sons and mother.

With the 40,000 UAH, Andrey plans to buy land to further expand his business and build additional greenhouses. Andrey has an opportunity to purchase land adjacent to his site at a normal price, so he would like to buy it for the future, and expand into it in a year or two. Andrey can be described as an active, hardworking, independent and courageous person, as he has developed a great business in just a few years.
