He lives with wife and son in their house, which was built in the early 1980s. His family has been living in this house since it was built, and they have never made any improvements to it.
Lately his house has become very uncomfortable. It has become cold during winter and many parts are damaged. Therefore, Amgalanbaatar decided to make renovations to his house and he needs to purchase the necessary building materials to make these renovations. Then he will install a smokeless furnace in his living room.
In the last several years, smoke and air pollution have become big issues in Mongolia. It comes from the slum district households that use coal and old cars in the cities.
The loan Mr. Amgalanbaata is requesting will be dedicated to making renovations to his house and to buying a new smokeless furnace from a certified supplier.
