Urgamal has been a hairdresser since moving to the capital city. She rented a corner with her eldest daughter, Sarantungalag, 21, who is also a hairdresser and works with her. Urgamal has gained valuable experience in previous years and has a loyal customer base. Her second husband, Batmunkh, works as a firefighter at the state’s emergency department.
Urgamal is planning to open her own salon and give her children a good education and morals. Part of her loan will be used to pay for some necessary furniture for her son who recently moved out, and the other part will be used to pay her younger daughter’s tuition fees.
