Ganzorig is 39 years old and lives with his daughter in a ger (Mongolian yurt) in the Dornod province of Mongolia. He is a single father. His daughter is a school student. He started his business in 2006 by selling meat. In 2010, he started selling religious articles instead of meat. This business is much more profitable and easy on him, however it requires additional money in order to run it. He is requesting 2,000,000 MNT to buy religious supplies. He is a sharp and hardworking man who says "The meat retailing business income was difficult to support my daughter. Now my antique business is paying off, however due to the lack of supplies, I am losing a lot of customers".
