Doljindolgor's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped To purchase materials and equipment to make felt.
Doljindolgor is a 33-year-old very busy mother of three. Ten years ago, she started making felt shoes and boot liners for winter. She used to live in the countryside but two years ago she moved to town. Since moving, she has become very busy. She has started making several new styles and has started to gather a growing clientele. In order to keep her business growing, she needs some equipment and materials. She needs wool and combing and shaking machines to make the felt. She also needs materials and detergent to wash the wool and felt. She has also recently bought a knitting machine and is learning to use it. As her patterns and product appearance get better, she wants to take on partners and maybe even teach other people how to make it. Doljindolgor lives with her husband and three sons (6, 9, and 12) in Uvurkhangai province. During the winter her husband drives a taxi and in the summer he goes to the countryside with the boys to tend to the livestock. Doljindolgor is meticulous in her work, hard working, and humble to a fault. Since she was little, Doljindolgor has always finished what she started and seeing something she has accomplished makes her happy. “There is a lot I want to do!” she says.
