Gantumur's story

Mr. Gantumur is 35-years-old and a driver. Since last spring he has been running passenger transportation by his minivan around Ulaanbaatar, which is the capital city of Mongolia. His wife Yanjmaa runs a second-hand clothes store in a rented shop. Gantumur lives with his family in the recently built house in the ger district, an area of city with no running water, minimal roads and spotty electricity. His children always get sick in winter because of the cold at home. His house was built without wall insulation and house inside becomes the cold due to the heat loss. Gantumur uses a coal-fired stove to warm his house in winter. It smokes too much and damages the health of his family members as well as the environment. So he decided to make repairs to his house including the wall insulation. He hopes it will be economic and healthy for environment. The loan he is taking will be used to pay for the building materials for his house repairs.
