A loan of $1,150 helped to purchase seeds for the next season.

Sergei's story

Sergei has big plans for his second harvest and hopes to double his revenue. He has been investing everything back in his business. He recently inherited a piece of land from his parents, who weren't working it anymore. It has two big greenhouses which he has spent time and money fixing up so that he can use them.

This year prices have risen and continue to rise, and therefore Sergei put all his money toward buying fertilizers and plastic film as well as helping his son and his sister, whose daughter got married. Seeds have gotten more expensive too and he now has the ability to buy good ones, so Sergei decided to turn to Kiva, so he can borrow some money and buy seeds both for this year and next year. The sum he needs for this is 15,000 grivens.
