Unur, who is 38 years old, resides with her husband in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia, in a small house in the outer ger (a traditional Mongolian felt tent) districts. Unur supports her family by operating a clothing retail stall at Narantuul, the largest outdoor market in Mongolia, while her husband supports the family by planting cucumbers in his yard.

When Unur started her business in 2000, she had 1,000,000 Mongolian (MNT) in working capital. Today, her business has grown so that she now has 2,000,000 MNT in working capital. For the past 11 years, Unur has been selling jean trousers from Ereen, a Chinese border city, and the profits have helped sustain the family and improve their living conditions. For example, she and her husband were able to buy their own yard upon which they built their small house with their business earnings in 2010. Unur is now requesting a loan of 1,000,000 MNT to purchase more jean trousers.

Unur wants to expand her stall with this loan and then be able to build their own small pickled cucumber enterprise.
