Bolor-Erdene is 19 years old and lives with her husband in their ger, a traditional Mongolian yurt, in Ulaanbaatar. She runs a taxi business and her husband works as a plasterer. They built the ger nearby the parents' house, on the plot of land of her parents-in-law. Both sets of parents bought a ger as a gift for their wedding.
In the future, Bolor-Erdene wants to have her own land and house, and to educate herself at university. She tried to get into university this year but she was late for admissions.
As a young married couple, Bolor-Erdene and her husband want to buy furniture to furnish their ger in order to improve their living conditions.
