Mariya lives in Vinogradovo. She is engaged in agriculture, growing early vegetables for sale; namely tomato, cucumber and cabbage. Mariya has 50 acres of land and five greenhouses. She is married and has two sons. Both sons have congenital eye problems: the eldest son is 27 years old with only 50% vision, while the younger, only 11 years old, has only 30% vision. Consequently, the family always has extra costs.

Mariya needs a loan of 15,000 hryvnia (UAH) in order to purchase seeds, chemical fertilizer, firewood for heating, and plastic sheeting for greenhouses. Mariya eventually hopes to build yet another greenhouse to expand her household business. With the additional profit from these investments, Mariya hopes to invest in vision correction surgery for one of her sons.

Мария живет в Виноградово. Она занимается сельским хозяйством, выращивая ранние овощи на продажу, а именно помидоры, огурцы и капусту. У Марии 50 соток земли и 5 теплиц. Она – замужем, у нее двое сыновей. У обоих сыновей – врожденная проблема со зрением: старшему сыну – 27 лет, он видит только на 50%, а у младшего, которому всего 11 лет, - только 30% зрения, вследствие чего в семье постоянно есть дополнительные расходы.
Марии необходим кредит в размере 15 000 гривен для того, чтобы закупить семена, минеральные удобрения, дрова для отопления и пленку для теплицы. Со временем Мария надеется построить еще одну дополнительную теплицу, чтобы расширить хозяйство. А дополнительную прибыль от этого капиталовложения Мария надеется вложить в операцию одного из сыновей по коррекции зрения.
