Lkhasuren lives with his family in a "ger", a Mongolian traditional nomadic tent in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. Lately his "ger" cover is becoming old and is too thin in freezing cold winter weather. Therefore he needs to exchange it for new one. A "ger" cover is a core part of a Mongolian yurt and is made from sheep wool. The loan he is requesting will be dedicated to covering the cost of new "ger" covering to improve his family's living conditions.
