The borrower has been manufacturing wooden furniture by customer order since 2008. Wooden furniture manufacture is seasonal and not very fulfilling of their family expenses, so he is planning to start a business of meat retail in local market. He already found a rental counter and now needs an additional 4'000'000 MNT (Mongolian tugriks) to purchase a large amount of livestock to produce meat for his newly starting butcher shop. He is a hardworking, honest and responsible person.
