Byambasuren, who is 47 years old and lives with her children, both college students, in an apartment in the Hovd Province of Mongolia, started her business in 2003 by selling home appliances at the local market. She brings in most of her products from the Mongolian western border, and her business is free from seasonal fluctuations and thus profitable on a constant basis.

An open-minded person, Byambasuren says, "The months of September and October are for marriage and other celebrations. So, the demand for home appliances is very high. I want to sell as many products as possible." Byambasuren is requesting a 1,500,000 tugrik loan to buy more products for her business.
