Orkhon, who is 29 years old, lives with his wife and two-year-old son in a ger, a traditional Mongolian nomadic tent, in a suburb of Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. A carpenter by trade, since 2008 Orkhon has been running a taxi business and also working as a part-time handyman. His wife works in one of the “Khaan buuz”’ chain restaurants as a kitchen assistant.

Orkon's wife's younger brother is leaving for South Korea to work on a labor contract; such contracts are very hard to obtain due to the large volume of Mongolians applying to work abroad to earn some extra money, and they must pass through a very strict selection procedure. The loan Mr.Orkhon is requesting will be used to pay for his brother-in-law's travel to Korea and to cover some personal expenses.
