Byambasuren's story

T. Byambasuren is 53 years old and lives with her daughter in the Arkhangai province in central Mongolia. She and her family live in a ger, a traditional Mongolian nomadic housing tent. She operates a garment making business with the help of her daughter in her town. Byambasuren started her business in 1990 with 50,000 tugrugs (~35 USD). Over the years she has managed her business quite successfully and built a loyal customer base that frequently buy her hand-made clothes. With nearly 20 years experience as a seamstress, Byambasuren produces quality products and is trusted by her customers. Today, her working capital exceeds 600,000 tugrugs (~420 USD). Byambasuren is a hardworking businesswoman and has many plans for her business. She says, "I hope to expand my business in the near future." She is requesting a 400,000 tugrug (~280 USD) loan to purchase fabrics and materials to sew more clothes.
