His current house was built 10 years ago. Now it needs renovation, because the house has become old and poor. Before the rainy season, he plans to re-cover the roof and then enlarge the storeroom (depot) and do some interior work, because when it’s raining outside, it drips from under the roof. It’s really hard to live in when it’s leaking.
Thus, Enkhbaatar is requesting a MNT 1,500,000 (Mongolian Tugrik) loan to purchase roofing materials, wood, wallpaper, and other necessary construction materials for his housing work.
