Altantuya's story

Altantuya G. is a married mother of five. She has four daughters and one son. Her eldest two daughters live in the countryside and work as herders. Her son lives and studies in the city of Erdenet. She lives with her husband and two youngest daughters in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia.

Together with her husband, she started a business in 2000, running a fruit stall at the Narantuul ("black market"), the biggest year-round outdoor market in Mongolia. She sells fruit at all times except winter. During the winter months, she sells frozen fruits, such as cranberries, and many types of jellies. Her husband buys a variety of fruits wholesale.

When she started her retail business, her family lived on someone else's plot of land, renting it for MNT 15,000 ($10). As a result of her retail business profits, she was able to buy a plot of land and her husband has built a little house on it. They are a hard-working, friendly and nice couple. With this loan, Altantuya will buy more fruit.
