Gerelsuren's story

Gerelsuren T. is 57 years old and lives with her husband and three children in a traditional housing tent called a 'ger' and fence in Uvurhangai province, central Mongolia. Her two children attend university. Since 1997, Gerelsuren has been operating a dairy products trading business at the local market in the province. During the summertime she sells mare's milk (fermented milk) and has become quite experienced in the trade. After years of successful operation, she has gained a lot of experience as a businesswoman. Her son opened a grocery shop next to Atar Urguu company (flour making) that attracts many customers. Gerelsuren is a hardworking and open-minded woman. She wants to increase her current assets and is intent on expanding her business in the future. Her dream is to have her own dairy product-making factory for the future. She is requesting a 1,500,000 MNT loan to purchase a large amount of dairy products to sell at her stall and more grocery products for her son's shop.
