A loan helped to replace her house's heating system and remodel its rooms.


Oksana's story

Oksana is married, and lives in her own house with her husband and two children. She has been running her own business selling underwear and bathing suits since 2005.

Her family inherited her parents' house many years ago and has been living in it for a long time. The house is worn-out and practically falling apart because they haven't had the chance to make much-needed repairs to it. Oksana and her husband decided to put all of their effort into a full renovation of their house so they can one day leave the house to their children. Oksana plans on spending 70,000 UAH on replacing the house's heating system To do this, she wants to buy a new boiler. Most importantly, she also wants to use the money to install 4 doors between various rooms and to renovate the rooms by lining the walls and ceilings with wooden paneling and painting that paneling light blue.
