Galina, her husband, and their two children live in the rural town of Gorinchevo, in Khust. She earns her living weaving wicker, making breadboxes, wreaths, flower-vases, baskets and other handmade items. She is well known in town for always doing a conscientious job and providing quality work. She's been in business for five years. She previously worked in Moscow in construction, renovating apartments, but then she got sick, plus her parents passed away so she came back home to look for some kind of work. The wickerwork brings in an income of 2700 UAH.

Galina is seeking a loan for personal use: she wants to finalize the paperwork on the house the family inherited from her husband's parents.

Раньше Галина работала в Москве на строительстве и ремонте квартир, но потом заболела и, к тому же, у нее умерли родители, пришлось искать какой-то заработок у себя на родине. Доход от плетения составляет 2 700 гривен.

Галине необходим кредит для личных нужд: она хочет оформить документы на дом, который ее семья получила в наследство от родителей мужа.
