Erdenebold is 32 years old and lives with his wife and two children in a ger (Mongolian yurt) in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. His wife helps with his business and his children are kindergarten students.

Erdenebold started his vacuum-insulated window manufacturing business in 2010. Before he started the business, he had four years of experience working in a vacuum-insulated window factory. Since he started the business, he has become a supplier for many companies. In 2011, he opened his own vacuum-insulated company. His products are well-designed and his customers are satisfied with them.

Vacuum-insulated windows are very energy-efficient; they protect from cold in the winter and heat in the summer. Now that his business is doing well, his product demand is high. Therefore, Erdenebold needs to purchase more materials to make more energy-efficient, vacuum-insulated windows in order to meet the market demand. He's requesting 2,000,000 MNT to purchase more materials.
