Lham A. lives with her husband in Arhanghay, one of Mongolia's central provinces. Lham is 61 years old and has retired with her husband. All her children have already grown up and live with their own families.

Since her retirement is not enough to cover her living expenses, she has started a small cafeteria/bar with the help of her children. She runs the small fast food cafeteria/bar in the town. It is quite common in Mongolia to have a small cafeteria and bar in the same place. During the mornings and afternoons the restaurant serves cafeteria style food and in the evenings it serves alcohol. Her restaurant/bar is located next to the town's sports center, and is usually full during sporting events.

She requests a loan to purchase ingredients and beverages for her cafeteria/bar business.
