Olga is a retired person. Her received pension is simply not enough to live on. This is why Olga must sell vegetables at the market as a hired employee of one of the market employers. Not long ago, Olga broke her leg and had an operation which is why she was disabled for some time. Olga hopes that she will get back to normal soon and be able to once again go earn money at the market. Olga has been raising her granddaughter like her own daughter for the last six years. The girl's mother, her daughter-in-law, abandoned the family and her daughter, leaving the child with Olga. Olga really looks after the child and wants to provide her with a home and raise her while she still has the strength.

Olga and her husband live in their own home not far from the nature reserve "Narcissus Field" in Khoost. Some things in the house have already been repaired previously, specifically the windows and doors have been replaced, plumbing has been brought into the house and a porch has been constructed. Now Olga wants to re-plaster the house, for which she needs 10,000 hryvnia (UAH).
View original language description ↓
Ольга — пенсионерка. Получаемой пенсии элементарно не хватает на жизнь, из-за чего Ольге приходится приторговывать на рынке овощами в качестве наемного работника у одного из рыночных предпринимателей. Недавно Ольга сломала ногу и ей даже делали операцию, поэтому некоторое время была нетрудоспособной. Ольга надеется, что скоро оправится полностью и сможет снова пойти подрабатывать на рынок. Ольга уже 6 лет воспитывает внучку как собственную дочь. Мать девочки, ее невестка, бросила семью и ребенка и уехала, оставив ребенка на бабушку. Ольга очень заботится о ребенке, хочет обеспечить ее жильем и вырастить пока хватает сил.
Ольга с мужем живут в собственном доме недалеко от заповедника «Нарциссовое поле» в Хусте. Кое-что в доме уже удалось отремонтировать ранее, а именно поменяли окна и двери, провели воду в дом, достроили веранду. Теперь Ольга хочет поштукатурить дом, для чего ей нужна сумма в 10 000 гривен.
