Batbayar's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to puchase building and insulation materials.
Mr. Batbayar, 25 years old, lives with his mother in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. He has been rendering taxi service to the local people for eight months. Before this, he worked as a truck driver at a copper mine but he quit his job because his mother lived alone in Ulaanbaatar. Using his previous loan, he purchased and installed a heating system in his house. But it was not enough to protect them from the cold winter, and it consumed too much energy. Now he is requesting a loan of 5,000,000 MNT to purchase building and insulation materials, such as bricks, cement, fiberglass and foam in order to repair and insulate his wooden house. As a result, he and his mother will live in a comfortable and warm place where they won't need to burn a lot of coal for heating, which will have a positive impact on the environment as less pollutants will be released into the air.
