A loan of $725 helped to renovate gers.

Punsal's story

A. Punsal is 58 years-old and lives with her husband and two children in Uvurkhangai province in central Mongolia. Her husband is retired and her two children are in college. Her family moved to Uvurkhangai seven years ago and they live together in a one room apartment.

Punsal operates a ger (a monogolian nomadic felt tent) camp in the yard of her apartment building. Her business serves the many tourists and travelers that pass through her province. In 2004, Punsal started her business by building a ger and fencing in the yard around her apartment building. Her business found success and she expanded by building five more gers. She stays very busy during the summer tourist season, but her business dies down in the winter and she stores three of her gers. Punsal hopes to expand her business in the future. Her oldest daughter is currently finishing her final course to become a tourism specialist. Punsal said, “my daughter is graduating as a tourism specialist, I think we will expand our business.” In the meantime, however, Punsal must renovate and replace the covers of her aging gers. She is requesting a loan of 1,000,000 tugrug (approx. $870 USD) to renovate her gers.
