Amgalan, 33 years old, lives with his family in the Selenge province, located north in Mongolia. From November, 2011 to December, 2012 he has worked as an operator in coal mine. When the coal mine collapsed and stopped its operation, he began rendering taxi service to people who lives in Ulaanbaatar, capital city of Mongolia. The taxi he uses for service belongs to his friend. Also he is living temporarily in that friend’s home and he is feeling he is such a burden to his friend. His official residence belongs to Selenge province and now he is temporarily residing in his friend's house on plot of land.

So he is requesting a loan of 5300000 MNT to purchase an automobile which is powered by an electric motor. Electric cars contribute to cleaner airs because they produce no harmful pollution at the tailpipe from the on-board source of power, such as particulates, volatile organic compounds, hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, ozone, lead, and various oxides of nitrogen. By taking the loan he can purchase his electric car and can use it for taxi service without using his friend’s car. Most importantly the car he purchases will contribute greatly to the efforts against air pollution.
