A loan of $375 helped to purchase slippers and flip flops for her business.

Delgermoron's story

Delgermoron N. is a 33-year-old single mother living with her only son in the Bayanzurh district of Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. Her son is a seventh grade student at a local high school. She has a small retail business selling shoes, especially slippers and flip flops. She rents a stall in the Narantuul market, the largest outdoor market in Ulaanbaatar.

Delgermoron frequently travels to Ereen, a Chinese border town, where many products are imported from, and buys inventory for her stall in the Narantuul market. When she runs out of a specific size of slippers or flip flops, she can buy them from a wholesale market in Ulaanbaatar. With her profit, she was able to buy her own ger, a traditional felt tent that many Mongolians still use. Next, she would like to set aside some money for her son's education. She hopes to ensure that her only son receives a good education and pursues his dreams.

She requests a loan to purchase more slippers and flip flops for her business.
