Altansuh's story

Altansuh C. is married and the father of two daughters. His family lives in a "ger" (traditional nomadic housing, like a yurt) district in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. His eldest daughter goes to an elementary school, and his youngest, who is 3 years old, stays at home.

With his spouse, Gereltuya, Altansuh has been running a shoe sales business since 2001. He goes to Ereen, a Chinese border city, twice every month and to Beijing once a quarter, to purchase girls' shoes at wholesale prices. His spouse, Gereltuya, sells the shoes at her shoe stall, which is located at the Narantuul, the biggest outdoor market in Ulaanbaatar. The market runs year round despite the extreme winter temperatures.



During the last three years, he has been building a house for himself and for his family. He is planning to complete the house in the coming autumn and move in. Altansuh hopes to have his own indoor stall to prevent his wife from getting sick from working outside during the freezing winter. With this loan, he will buy more shoes for his business and construction material to complete the house where his family will live.
