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.

Юрий живет в городе Хуст, Западная Украина. Он работает пожарником в министерстве чрезвычайных ситуаций. Работает сутки через 4 дня, в остальное свободное время также подрабатывает ремонтом квартир. Работать приходится на двух работах, потому что только так хватает средств выжить с теми ценами, которые существуют сейчас в Украине.

Юрию необходима сумма в 10 000 гривен для того, чтобы сделать ремонт в квартире, куда они с женой смогут переехать после своей свадьбы. Юрий давно планировал съехать от родителей и расписаться со своей девушкой. Сделав долгожданный ремонт в квартире, они наконец-то смогут воплотить свою мечту в реальность и начать строить свою собственную семью отдельно.
