A loan of $1,250 helped to renovate the apartment where he and his wife will live after their marriage.


Yuryi's story

Yuryi lives in the city of Khoost in western Ukraine. He is a firefighter with the Ministry of Emergencies. He works a full 24-hour shift once every 4 days and in his free time he earns additional money by renovating apartments. You have to work two jobs because it's the only way you can earn enough to live with prices as high as they are now in Ukraine. Yuryi needs a loan of 10,000 hryven (UAH) to be able to renovate the apartment where he and his wife will move after their marriage. Yuryi has planned for a long time to move away from his parents and marry his sweetheart. Once the long-awaited renovation is finished, they'll finally be able to turn their dream into reality and begin to build their own life together. Note: story in Russian
