Vasiliy's story

Vasiliy lives in the city of Khoost in the Transcarpathia province of southwestern Ukraine. He has been selling dried fruits, vegetables and fresh fruits for two years. He rents a retail space at a local market. He works using his own car, which makes his job easier when it comes to driving around to buy fruits and vegetables.

In order to buy more merchandise, Vasiliy needs 5,000 hryvnia. He plans to use this sum of money to buy tangerines, apples, cucumbers, pineapples and dried fruits. He dreams of building his own house one day and to open a small store inside his house, where he would sell fruits and vegetables. In the meantime, he wants to continue to develop his business thanks to which, as a matter of fact, he is able to support his entire family (his wife and his two daughters, ages 7 and 4).
