Recently she bought a small plot of land in the boundary area of Kherlen. Her family is planning to build a ger and fence it in. A ger is a Mongolian traditional nomadic yurt and it is comfortable to live in for small families. But it is quite cold in winter without the additional cover which is the same as wall insulation, and it costs a lot of money for the smoky coal which is used to warm the ger inside. Using the additional ger cover cuts the smoky coal usage notably and it contributes to reducing air pollution in the city. Air pollution and air quality is one of biggest issues in most Mongolian households and big cities. Mrs. Narantuya believes that her plan is environmentally friendly. The loan she is taking will be dedicated to buy the new ger cover and building materials to build the fence around her plot of land.
