A loan helped to renovate her house.

Tumennasan's story

Mrs. Tumennasan is 34 years old and lives with her husband and four children in Erdenet, the third largest city in Mongolia. Tumennasan has been running an auto repair shop for ten months and her husband works at a cement factory. The house her family lives in has deteriorated over the years and it needs some repair. Therefore, Tumennasan is requesting a loan of 2,500,000 MNT to buy bricks in order to renovate her house. By encasing her house with bricks, it will protect the house from the cold and storms. The renovated house will enable the family to burn less coal for heating and release less smoke into air, thus contributing to the efforts against air pollution.
