Baasannyambuu has been running a tractor at a military unit in the borderland. During wintertime, running a tractor at the military base is not needed, so Baasannyambuu works as a watchman, instead. He works for two days and takes one day off. During the day off, he renders taxi services to local people, using his own automobile.
The ger they live in has deteriorated over the past years and it is about time the family changed their dwelling. Baasannyambuu is requesting a loan of MNT 1,800,000 to purchase a five-walled, traditional Mongolian ger (portable felt dwelling).
A five-walled, traditional Mongolian ger has more space and is a lot warmer than the four-walled version. As a result, the family can live in a comfortable and warm place. Baasannyambuu is a very hard-working individual who strives for a better future.
