Mrs. Byambadolgor lives with four children and a niece in a ger (a Mongolian yurt) in Uvurhangai province, Mongolia. Her husband passed away many years ago. Her oldest daughter, Dejidmaa, is 21 years old; her oldest son, Hanchandmanai, is 19 years old; her younger son, Natsagdorj, is 15 years old; and her younger daughter, lhagwa, is 14 years old.

She started her business in 2002 by making felt and wool art, and at that time, her turnover capital was equal to 100,000 Mongolian tugriks (MNT). Now, she produces felt slippers, felt underlining and blankets in a rented room. She already has many regular clients. In a few months, the cold will come, and she has a lot of orders for felt underlining and blankets. She needs 2,000,000 MNT to purchase raw materials for her business.
