Otgonbaatar's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase home appliances and spare parts for his truck.
Mr. Otgonbaatar, 32 years old, lives with his family in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. The family resides in a traditional Mongolian ger (portable felt dwelling) on his relative's yard. His wife works as a cook at a restaurant. Since 2011, he has been providing transportation services using his own truck between Ulaanbaatar and other cities. Before this business, he had been working as a driver at a private business. His son goes to elementary school and is in the fourth grade. Recently he purchased a second-hand natural gas vehicle that needs some parts updated and changed. Also, his home lacks some necessary daily-use appliances. He is requesting a loan of 3,000,000 MNT to cover the costs of purchasing home appliances such as a vacuum cleaner, a washing machine, and a sofa, as well as spare parts for his automobile. As a result, his family can live in a more comfortable place and he can work enthusiastically. The borrower is a very hardworking individual who strives for a better future.
