B. Amarbat operates a meat trading business in his town. He is 43 years old and lives with his wife and three children in Uvs province, in western Mongolia. He and his family live in a ger, which is a traditional Mongolian housing tent. His three children (two sons and a daughter) all attend a local secondary school.

Amarbat currently owns 250 sheep, 80 goats, 10 cows and 8 horses which he raises and uses to supply his business. He purchases new animals every fall and sells their meat during the spring when it is most profitable. It is quite a large task to take care of all the animals, but Amarbat has help. His wife and children all help out by tending to the animals at home.

Amarbat started his business in 2000 and has become quite successful in his trade. He continues to grow his business and has plans to have his own farm and improve his breeding practices in the near future. He works very hard to support his family and says, "I want my children to be well educated so they can lead happy lives.” He is requesting a 1,500,000 tugrug loan to purchase more livestock for his business.
