A loan helped To buy building materials including metal board roof, wooden door and wall insulation materials for her house repair.
Mrs. Nomin-Erdene, 34, sells women's clothes out of her rental stall. She has been running her business for 5 years and lives with her family in her old house in the 'ger' district, an area of the city with no running water, minimal roads, spotty electricity and including Mongolian traditional nomadic yurts in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. She wants to repair her house. In winter, her house becomes cold and has a heat loss through the some parts of the house. Her house roof is made of lead and it has been bad and old, has a heat loss, emission and water drops. The walls and door have been damaged a lot and became very bad, so she is planning to replace all of them at once. She will do wall insulation with foam, sand and cement and install a new wooden door. Then she will replace the roof with a metal board one. This all will cost about MNT 3,000,000 in the construction materials market in Mongolia. She totally believes her family can live in comfort and stay warm at home in winter after the repair. She is requesting a loan to buy building materials including metal board roof, a wooden door and wall insulation materials for her house repair.
