Jargalsaikhan's story

Mr. Jargalsaikhan, 35 years old, lives with his wife and three children in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. The family lives in a Mongolian traditional ger (portable felt dwelling) on a plot of land. Since 2005, he has been rendering taxi service to local people for living. His wife runs a cafeteria near his home and pays monthly rent to a landlord. Two of his children go to high school and one stays at home and helps her mother. Now he is requesting a loan of 7,000,000 MNT (Mongolian tugriks) to purchase building and insulation materials in order to build a new house on the plot of land. Why he needs a new house is that during winter time, a Mongolian traditional ger can't protect his children from cold and as a result, his children got sick frequently last winter. He has built a house foundation and done some other construction work, and if now he can buy necessary materials, he could finish his new house before winter, which will come to Mongolia in three months. He wants to welcome the new year with his family in a new comfortable and warm house full of joy and happiness. More importantly, the new house will stop losing its heat and preserve energy and enable the family to burn less coal for heating, thus releasing less pollutants into air, contributing to the efforts against air pollution. The borrower is a very hardworking and caring person. In the profile picture, you can see the borrower's tarnished and deteriorated portable felt dwelling.
