Sahtagan M., 37, lives with his wife and four children in a ger, a Mongolian traditional nomadic housing tent, in Bayan-Ulgiy Province in western Mongolia. His wife is currently unemployed, while three of their children attend a local secondary school and his youngest son goes to a local kindergarten.

Sahtagan has operated a transportation service using his truck since 2000, and his earnings from this successful enterprise enabled him to purchase a big new Russian truck called the Zil-130 with a truck trailer in 2009. He hopes to continue making progress with his business and says, " My truck trailer is old, so I need to purchase a new one." Sahtagan is now requesting a 3,000,000 MNT (2249 USD) loan to increase his working capital before coal prices become high in anticipation of winter.
