Altantuya is 44 years old lives with son in GER Mongolian traditional tent in ger district, an area of the city with no running water, minimal roads and spotty electricity, in Ulaanbaatar. She is master in tailoring factory since 2006. Her son is accountant in local company.
Altantuya wants to buy a car for son. The car will be used for personal needs. The car, which all Mongolian people’s using, has too big engine, so it uses 10-12 liter petrol per 100 kilometer. The study showed that average car, which runs on petrol, emits 135g CO2 per km to atmosphere. And also the petrol contains harmful ingredients like zinc, lead and others, to people’s health and the environment. Economically, riding a car with big engine in Mongolia is not rational, because Mongolia imports fuel products from the neighbors and its price always rises.
Altantuya is asking a loan to buy a car, which runs on a natural gas. She already paid part of the money, but still owes 3,500,000 MNT to the seller. The reason he is asking for this loans is to pay the rest of the money for her car. The natural gas emits fewer harmful chemicals into the atmosphere than petrol. Altantuya and her son will contribute their effort to save the environment.
