Uuganchimeg's mother was a tailor, and she reports that she learned a great deal from her mother.

The number of her customers is continually increasing. Following the modern trends expected by today's customers, Uuganchimeg believes that it is necessary to move into the area of fashion design and to provide a salon storefront where her customers can place their orders.
