Battogtoh and his wife operate two businesses in their town. In 2001 they started a raw material trading business that sells a variety of materials including sheepskin, wool, and cashmere. In 2005 they purchased 20 hectares of land to plant wheat, a seasonal business not operating in the winter.
Battogtoh is a great businessman and father. He says, “Me and my wife are working hard to purchase a house for my oldest son and to create a bright future for all of my children.” He is now requesting a 2,500,000 tugrug (~ 1830 USD) loan to purchase a large amount of wheat seed for his agriculture business and more wool and cashmere for his raw material trading business.
