A loan of $925 helped to make repairs to her ceiling.


Oksana's story

Oksana is a native of Khoost in western Ukraine. She is married and she is raising one child. Her family has their own one-story home. The house is old, but it is comfortable and warm and they have all the necessary modern appliances and furniture.

In addition to his primary work, Oksana's husband also looks after an elderly woman, who is 81 years old. Oksana works as a shopkeeper. She has long wanted to make repairs on her home and to fix the ceiling. Because the house is old, the roof has sprung a leak that has started to seep through the ceiling. It needs to be replaced, plastered and painted, which is why Oksana needs 25,000 Hryvnas.
