Sandalhan U. is 44 years old and lives with her husband and three children in Bayan-Ulgiy province of western Mongolia in a ger- a traditional nomadic housing tent. Two of her children are students in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. Sandalhan works as a cleaner in Tirlik- the biggest market of the province. Her husband manages his clothing retailing business at the same market. Their net income reaches 320,000 per month. The two sell a variety of different clothing items. They began their business in 2006 with the loan of 500,000 MNT. This product expansion has proven to be a very profitable decision in that they were enabled to pay their children's tuition fees.

Sandalhan is a modest and hardworking woman. For the future, she says, "My husband and I are working for our children and having them become good people in the future. We hope to see one day their care after graduating the universities". Sandalhan is requesting a 1,000,000 MNT loan to purchase more clothing items from Tashkent- a border city of China, for her business.
