Mrs. Odbaatar lives with her two sons and her husband in a small, old house in the ger district of Mongolian, which is comprised of traditional nomadic yurts, in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia. Her husband works as a watchman and doesn't earn enough to pay for the family's necessities. Her house was built in the early 1990’s and is not a spacious place to live. In addition to this, Mrs. Odbaatar's house becomes cold and loses heat through the walls in the winter.
So Mrs. Odbaatar decided to make insulation for the walls and create an extension by adding one more room to her old house. As she said, "My house will be warm and comfortable after the renovation." She is asking for a loan for the purposes of making wall insulation and the house extension.
