Ariunaa is a 34-year-old married lady who lives with her spouse, daughter and parents in a small apartment in the city of Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia.
After graduating from sales worker’s training in 2009 she started supporting her family by operating a grocery store business in a local busy district.
But because of city construction work her small store moved to another place, so she needs a variety of food products. So Ariunaa is requesting a loan of 2,000,000 Mongolian tugriks (MNT) to purchase goods to sell.
Transcapital is one of the leading non-bank financial institutions (NBFI) in Mongolia. Through 12 branches, it serves mainly urban and semi-urban microfinance clients, including a growing number of migrants in the capital city of Ulaanbaatar. Of its clients, almost 68% are women and 60% live in ger districts, settlements made up of houses and traditional Mongolian felt tents that lack basic infrastructure.
