She is a female head of a household and lives with her three children in her house in the ger district, which is made up of traditional Mongolian nomadic yurts and few houses in boundary of Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. Her family moved into their current house in 2009; it was built many years ago. Since she bought her house, there have not been any repairs or renovation. Her house has heat loss or emission through its thin walls and windows. In winter her three children usually get sick because it is chilly at home. She uses a coal-fired furnace to heat her home, and it creates too much smoke inside and outside of house. Therefore she is keen to make repairs and insulate the walls by bricks and such other building materials. The loan she is asking will be used to buy the building materials and cover the cost of hiring workers for her house repair.
