Enhbaayar is 27 years old and lives with his wife and a son in a ger, a Mongolian felt tent, in the Hentii province of Mongolia. His son will attend kindergarten this fall and his wife is an accountant at Baylag Hurah LLC. Enhbaayar started a transportation service in 2005. After saving his profits, he purchased a car in 2010 and became a taxi driver. Now, he runs a public transportation service in his local town. Enhbaayar is well-balanced in terms of providing income to his family and supporting his business. He is a hardworking, diligent, and honest man who says, "After I received my driver's license, I was in the public transportation business. Now my wife is pregnant and I cannot go far away from home for longer time. That is why I bought this small car. I fix this car by myself.”
Enhbaayar is requesting a 1,500,000 MNT loan to purchase a car engine and other spare parts to maintain and repair his car.
