Sarantuya's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase raw materials, such as felt, to make a variety of souvenirs.
Sarantuya is a 40-year-old, who lives with her family in the outer district of Ulaanbaatar city, Mongolia. She supports her family by operating a felt souvenir business. She usually makes felt bags, saucers and sandals. Foreigners who are travelling in Mongolia are her customers. Sarantuya distributes her goods to local indoor and outdoor markets, stalls, whole suppliers and souvenir shops. Summer is the very high shopping season for her business because a lot of tourists come here to travel and they do shopping through souvenir shops. Thus she is requesting a 4,000,000 Mongolian Tugriks (MNT) loan to purchase felts to make her goods for sale. In addition, she is a very trusted client of our institution and this is her second Kiva loan. She really appreciates Kiva loans.
