Norovsuren T. lives with her teenage daughter in Uvurhangai province, Mongolia. She and her daughter live in a 'ger', a traditional Mongolian nomadic tent. Her daughter attends a local high school. Her husband passed away so she is a widow.

Norovsuren operates a business selling veterinary medicines and eye-glasses in her town. She started her business in 1995 by selling a variety of veterinary medicines and men's & women's clothes in a rented stall at her local market. Since then, she keeps running her pharmacy for livestock with a stable operation.

Norovsuren also sells eye-glasses in addition to her business. She purchases her inventory for both businesses 1-2 times a month, depending on her inventory or sales. Over the years, she has gained much experience and built a positive reputation for her business in the community. She says, "In the future, I want to expand my business and also to provide for my daughter's education". She is requesting a 2,500,000 MNT loan to purchase more veterinary medicines and eye-glasses at wholesale prices from Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia.
