Tuvshinbaatar's story

Tuvshinbaatar is 39 years old, and he works in the power plant in Darkhan, the second largest city of Mongolia. He has been working since 1994 nonstop and has become one of the skillful specialists at the electric power plant.

He lives with his wife and son in the city. His family owns an old apartment with two rooms. They have been living there since 1994; before that, he used to live with his parents.

Since 1998 he has not made any repairs or renovations to his home, and now it is old and rundown. In winter it becomes too cold to live in because of the heat loss through the door and window of the living room. In response, sometimes he uses a coal stove to heat his home. His son Tuvshinbayar, who is 14, always has a flu and cold every winter.

So he decided to repair his apartment. At first he will enclose the balcony by the installing shelter. He hopes it will reduce the heat loss through the window of the living room and the need to use the toxic coal fuel. He can use his new balcony with the shelter in various ways, such as storing things. Then he is planning to replace the new doors to the rooms to retain heat well.

Now Tuvshinbaatar needs about 4 million MNT to implement his plan for his family’s environmental welfare. The loan he is taking will used to buy building materials to make the shelter on his balcony and replace the old doors at home.
