Since 2003, Erdenekhuyag has had a micro bus with 14 seats and with his wife runs a transportation business between Ulaanbaatar and a province 800 km away. He runs three times minimum in a month to Zavkhan province.
As his children grow the house is feeling smaller. Therefore Erdenekhuyag is planning to expand his house by building a new floor with wood and laying bricks on the outer side of the walls in order to stop the heat loss through the walls. By doing this Erdenekhuyag’s family can improve their living condition and will have a spacious house that will serve them the rest of their life.
