Tumenjargal's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase building and insulation materials.
Tumenjargal, 37 years old, lives with her husband and two children in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. The family resides in their own house on a plot of land. For four years she and her husband have been rendering transportation services to local people using their chartered bus. Her husband drives the bus while she works as a conductor. Last year, they purchased land where they built their house. However, due to lack of finances, they couldn't afford to finish it completely. So Tumenjargal is requesting a loan of 6,900,000 MNT to purchase necessary building and insulation materials, such as bricks, planks, foam, fiberglass and cement. Using these materials, she can complete the unfinished job and add insulation to its walls and roof. As a result, her family can live in a warm and comfortable place, which will enable the family to burn less coal and emit less smoke, thus contributing to the efforts against air pollution. Tumenjargal is a very hardworking individual who strives for a better future.
