Ariunbold lives with his family in an apartment in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia. His apartment building was built in the socialist era and has not been completely maintained or renovated for many years. In winter, it becomes cold inside and has heat loss through its walls, windows and doors. Ariunbold usually uses a wood or coal-fired stove to heat the rooms, but it emits a toxic smoke in the air. Therefore, Ariunbold has decided to repair his bad apartment by adding wall insulation for more warmth and replacing the windows and floor. He hopes that his family can live in a warmer and more comfortable home after the repairs. This loan will be used to cover the cost of the building materials for the repairs.
