Byambasuren's story

Byambasuren G. is a 64-year-old widow. She lives with her daughter, Oyunbileg, age 27, in Arhangai, which is one of the central provinces of Mongolia. In 1998, she looked for a better life and, therefore, moved to Arhangai Province. As soon as she moved, she started running a tailoring business from home.

Byambasuren gets orders from local residents and herders to sew a "deel," the Mongolian traditional dress, or she makes the deels first and then sells them. During the university graduation ceremony that is held in the spring, she gets a lot of orders from students. Her daugher, Oyunbileg, helps in her mother's business in addition to working as a teacher at a local elementary school.

Byambasuren makes the deels from cotton and a variety of silks. She is requests a loan to purchase raw materials for her business. She hopes to have her own working place in hear future and then expand her business by hiring employees, because she is getting more and more sewing orders.
