Mrs. Erdenechimeg is 50 years old, and lives with her husband and son in a little house in Selenge province. Because of the proximity of Selenge province to the Russian border, she has been operating her clothes-trading business across the Russian border with her family for 20 years. She buys the clothes in Russia, then transports them in the car that she bought with a prior loan, and sells them in villages on the Mongolian side of the border.

She is requesting a 5,000,000 MNT loan to buy a heating system for her house so that she can have better living conditions. She has previously borrowed money for her business and has paid her debt back on time.
