Moonon always wants his children to move out and start their individual lives immediately. His elder son, Ariunbold, will be married in next month, before the Christmas day. Therefore, his father Moonon wants to prepare his wedding gift, a ger. A ger is the nomadic Mongolian traditional tent and it does not cost so much in the markets of Mongolia. It consists of its wall, made by sheep's wool and other parts made of wood. Historically, Mongolians have been living and using the ger for their nomadic life for many hundreds of years. The loan Moonon is taking will be used to cover the cost of new ger for his son’s wedding.
