Mrs. Ganchimeg is a 60-year-old widow who lives with her daughter, aged 40, in Gobi-Altai province, Mongolia. She used to be a herder in the country-side. When she moved to the center of the province, she started selling groceries by retail in a rented store in the black market for three years.

Now she is planning to open a small food store right beside her house. She says that "There is no other food store near here so opening a small food store will be profitable". She is requesting a 1,000,000 MNT loan to buy goods from Ulaanbaatar, the capital city, for her small food store.
