Battsetseg's story

Battsetseg is 50 years old and lives with her husband in the Zavkhan province of Mongolia. She and her husband live together in a ger, a traditional Mongolian nomadic tent. Battsetseg and her husband operate a grocery store in their town. They began their business in 2000, and since then, they have been able to buy their own store which enables them to sell larger quantities of food. Battsetseg wants to keep expanding the amounts of products her store sells so that her neighbors will not have to go to larger markets farther away in order to buy their groceries. She says, “My wish is to own our own house in the future.” Battsetseg is requesting a 600,000 tugrug (~425 USD) loan in order to purchase a large amount of groceries to sell for the upcoming winter months.
