Mrs. Tsendsuren is married and a 41-year-old entrepreneur who has been operating a national costume (the deel) sewing business at the largest outdoor market since 2001. She lives with her daughter and spouse in the outer ger district, which lacks the basic infrastructure of Ulaanbaatar city, Mongolia.
She is requesting 2,000,000 Mongolian Tugriks (MNT) to purchase more materials to sew more traditional Mongolian costumes.
Transcapital is one of the leading non-bank financial institutions (NBFI) in Mongolia. Through 12 branches, it serves mainly urban and semi-urban microfinance clients, including a growing number of migrants in the capital city of Ulaanbaatar. Of its clients, almost 68% are women and 60% live in ger districts, settlements made up of houses and traditional Mongolian felt tents that lack basic infrastructure.
