Since 2010, Altai has been working as a carpenter for a construction company. He is a talented carpenter and began by sculpting little animal shapes when he was in secondary school.
Altai goes to work early in the morning and comes back at midnight due to his workload. When he comes home, a freezing cold house greets him. Thus, he is planning to insulate his home.
With this loan, Altai will fix the floor and roof of his house and make wall insulation using energy-saving materials. These changes will improve his living condition and stop the house from losing heat. As a result of these changes, he can save money that he now spends on heating and emit fewer of the hazardous chemicals generated by the coal-burning stove that warms the house.
