Gantumur is 36 years old, helpful, and an open-minded person. He lives with his wife, daughter, and son in Darkhan, the second largest city in Mongolia. His daughter Namuundari is 8 years old and his son Khatantumur is 11 years old. They are both in school.
Since 2008, he has been working as a steel reinforcing worker. In Mongolia, unemployment is high. That’s why he and his friends have organized a maintenance crew. His crew does jobs such as building houses, setting up heating systems, painting, masonry, and any construction work. His wife is a cook for this maintenance crew.
This summer, he bought land and a wooden house. He already paid most of the money, but still owes 2,000,000 MNT to the seller. The reason he is asking for this loan is to pay the rest of the money for his land and wooden house. Before this summer, his family rented a 1-room apartment. He said that this winter, they can now live comfortably and in peace.
