Mereke H. is 32 years old and lives with her husband in the Bayan-Ulgii province of western Mongolia. She and her family live together in a rented house.

Mereke and her husband operate a clothing and consumer goods retail business in their town. They began their business in 2008 after moving to their current town. Within a short period, they have built a stable and successful operation and today their working capital has exceeded 1,500,000 MNT. They plan to buy and warehouse a large amount of products before the new year holiday when borders of Mongolian and China are both closed.

Mereke says, " All I want is to have our own house where my husband and I can live comfortably." She is requesting a 2,500,000 MNT loan in order to purchase more products from China in order to increase her sales.
