Z. Battulga is 47 years old and lives with his wife and four children in a house in Uvs province, Mongolia. His oldest son and daughter are both university students and his youngest son and daughter attend local secondary schools.

Battulga manages a meat and animal fat oil trading business in his town with the help of his wife. He sells a variety of meats and fat oil which he makes from the internal organs of animals. Animal fat oil is a popular product among residents who live far from the market and can't make frequent trips into town. They use it to make everyday foods such as buns and to fry potatoes. Battulga started his business in 2005 after working as a driver for a power plant since 1990.

Since he started, his business has grown quickly and has become quite profitable. He recently used his earnings to remodel his house. He says, "My business has enabled me to greatly improve my family's quality of life. I am now saving to buy a car which will help me operate my business in the future." Battulga is requesting a 750,000 MNT (~530 USD) loan to purchase animal fat and organs for his business.
