In 2009 Badralmaa bought a plot of land and built a small family house. The house was built of wooden planks and it was completed as a basic structure. The house needs an improvement by installing insulation materials on all walls and roof and covering the insulation with one layer of brick wall.
Mongolian winter is one of the harshest in the world and on winter nights it reaches minus 40 to 45 degrees of Celsius. The loan Badralmaa is requesting will be used to buy insulation materials for the walls and roof and enough bricks to cover the walls from outside. Also it will be used to install a low pressure heating system which uses less coal to burn and releases much less smoke to the air.
