Vasiliy lives in the city of Khoost in the Transcarpathia province of southwestern Ukraine. He has been selling dried fruits, vegetables and fresh fruits for two years. He rents a retail space at a local market. He works using his own car, which makes his job easier when it comes to driving around to buy fruits and vegetables.

In order to buy more merchandise, Vasiliy needs 5,000 hryvnia. He plans to use this sum of money to buy tangerines, apples, cucumbers, pineapples and dried fruits. He dreams of building his own house one day and to open a small store inside his house, where he would sell fruits and vegetables. In the meantime, he wants to continue to develop his business thanks to which, as a matter of fact, he is able to support his entire family (his wife and his two daughters, ages 7 and 4).

Василий живет в городке Хуст, Закарпатская область. Он занимается реализацией сухофруктов, овощей и фруктов уже 2 года. Торговое место Василий арендует на местном рынке. В работе использует и свой собственный автомобиль, на котором легче работать и ездить на закупку овощей и фруктов.
Для приобретения очередной партии товара Василию нужна сумма в 5 000 гривен. На эти дополнительные средства он планирует закупить мандарины, яблоки, огурцы, ананасы и сушеные фрукты для дальнейшей реализации. Со временем Василий мечтает достроить собственный дом и открыть дома магазинчик по продаже овощей и фруктов, продолжая развивать свое дело, за счет которого, собственно говоря, живет вся его семья — жена и двое дочерей 7-ми и 4-х лет.
