Boldmaa's story

C. Boldmaa is 37 years old and lives with her husband and two sons in a house in Bayanhongor province, Mongolia. Her older son is a university student, her younger is in high school and her husband works as a taxi driver. Boldmaa operates a small hair salon in her town. She opened her business in 1997 in partnership with a close friend. She and her friend, who is also a hairdresser, started their business out of a small rented workspace.

Over the years, Boldmaa has grown her business into a successful and stable operation. In 2005, she used her savings to buy her own workplace. At this time she also gave her salon a name, "HANA". She has continued her success since 2005 and has since hired four more hairdressers to keep up with demand.

Boldmaa works hard to provide quality service to her many customers and hopes to continue her success in the future. She is requesting a 2,245,000 tugrug (~1580 USD) loan to purchase styling equipment and supplies for her salon.
