Tumur's story

Tumur S. is 47 years old and lives with his wife and four children in the Hovd province in the western part of Mongolia. The family lives together in a ger, a traditional Mongolian nomadic tent.

He graduated from a technical college 30 years ago as a repairman and, seeing an increase in the car-repairing business, he planned to run one in his town with the help of his sons.

Tumur is requesting a 3,000,000 Mongolian tugriks loan in order to purchase tools and equipment for his car-repairing business.
