A loan of $1,425 helped to purchase more vegetables to increase her business inventory.


Norjinsuren's story

Norjinsuren T. is a 32-years-old married woman. Her family lives in a "ger" (nomadic housing tent) district Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. She moved to the capital city from Gobi-Altay, one of the western provinces that is located more than 1,000 kilometers away from the capital. Her husband, Ganbat, works as a plumber for a privately held company. As soon as she moved in, Norjinsuren started running a retail business, selling vegetables through a rental stall at the local food market. She purchases a variety of vegetables including potatoes, carrots and cabbages from the wholesale market and then resells them at retail prices to locals, mostly repeat buyers. With this loan Norjinsuren is planning to purchase vegetables to increase her business inventory since she has bought a secondhand car for her business using her business income. Norjinsuren seems quite a shy woman. She says that ''my husband and I are planning to have a baby in near future. Honestly I don't have a very big dream with my business. What I think in life is I want to have many children and grow them healthy and with no hunger.”
