Enhgerel's story

Enhgerel, age 37, and her husband live with their three children in Umnugobi province. In 1997, Enhgerel decided she wanted to improve the life of her family, so she and a friend went into town and got involved in the clothing business. When she started, she only had 1.5 million Tugrugs. Now the business is worth 5.5 million. Once a month, Enhgerel gets new products from Beijing. Because she only buys high-quality products and receives them from Beijing, the clothes she offers are usually better than those offered by the other sellers.

Enhgerel needs a loan so she can purchase more apparel from Beijing. Her goal is eventually to have enough money to embark upon her real dream job: opening her very own pastry bakery and shop.

Her husband, Enhbayar, was crew foreman until an accident at work punctured one of his eardrums and left him partially deaf, a condition that persists even after attempts to have it corrected. He now works as a delivery man for the vendors in town.

Enhgerel and Enhbayar live with their children in their own ger (a Mongolian felt tent lived in by nomads). They have twins, Tseveenjav and Tseveensuren, age 16, and a son, Arvinbileg, age 10. They are all happy and healthy.

Enhgerel is a humble, pleasant person who believes her dreams are just on the horizon.
