Enkhtur's story

Enkhtur lives with his wife in a house in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. His wife is pregnant and stays at home while Enkhtur operates a taxi service.

Enkhtur began driving a taxi in 2007 and paid 33,000 tugrugs (~23 USD) per day in rental fees for a car to drive. Since then, he has managed to save enough money to not only buy his own car in order to operate his business, but he also managed to build his own house. He would like to keep earning more profit so that he can improve his growing family’s living standards.

Enkhtur is requesting a 1,500,000 tugrug loan in order to purchase repair parts for his taxi.
