Galina lives and works in the Velikaya Znamenka village. She has a husband and two adult daughters. Galina is involved in selling spare parts for agricultural machinery. Her husband actively helps her with this business because he knows machinery very well. They have been working in this field for 11 years. Galina plans to invest money, received from Kiva, into a purchase of a land plot for a store. She has already reached an agreement with the village council to purchase the land and plans to complete this transaction prior to the New Year's, while the laws remain unchanged. The land, that Galina wants to purchase, is located in the center of Znamenka, right across from the market, with practically all village stores surrounding it. There, Galina and her husband plan to continue selling auto parts for farm machinery, but also want to build a small kiosk nearby to sell food products. Galina hopes that this deal will happen, and that the land will belong to them because then they would not longer have to pay for a large lease, and no one would be able to take away their land or force them out.

Галина живет и работает в селе Великая Знаменка. У нее есть муж и двое взрослых дочерей. Галина занимается торговлей автозапчастями для сельхозтехники. Ее муж активно помогает ей в этом бизнесе, так как сам отлично разбирается в технике. В этой сфере они работают уже 11 лет.

Галина планирует вложить средства, полученные от КИВА в покупку земельного участка под магазин. Галина уже договорилась с сельсоветом о покупке земли и планирует завершить сделку до нового года, пока не изменились законы. Участок, который Галина хотела бы выкупить, находится в центре Знаменки, прямо напротив рынка – вокруг сосредоточены практически все магазины в селе. Там Галина с мужем планируют продолжать торговать автозапчастями для фермерской техники, однако также хотели бы построить рядом еще и небольшой ларек для торговли продуктами питания. Галина очень надеется, что сделка состоится, и земля все-таки будет принадлежать им, тогда не придется платить большую аренду, и никто не сможет забрать у них этот участок или вытеснить их.
