Purchasing the necessary machinery parts and raw materials from Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia, Shiirev has operated an auto repair business since 2005 and has steadily expanded his business as more and more people have bought cars in Mongolia in recent years, Previously, he operated a transportation business between Ulaanbaatar and Uvurhangai Province with his own car. His wife Tuya has been operating a hairdressing business since 2000, and also helps Shiirev's auto repair business.
