Nandintsetseg's story

Nandintsetseg, 29, is married and lives with her husband and two children in the Bayanhongor province of Mongolia. They live in a ger, a Mongolian nomadic housing tent, in her father's backyard. Her husband works as a driver for a mining company and her older daughter attends a local primary school.

Nandintsetseg used to work as a tailor in a clothing factory between 2000 and 2003 in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia. In 2004 she moved from Ulaanbaatar to her current home. In 2007 she began manufacturing felt handicrafts. She bought a couple of sewing machines for her business in 2009 with the money she made from her business. Afterward she began making deels, traditional Mongolian long coats, as well as modern clothing by custom order at home.

She is planning to rent a location to open her workshop and she hopes to hire a couple of tailors to work with her. She is requesting a loan of 2,000,000 MNT to purchase a couple of sewing machines for the workshop that she is going to open soon. She is a hardworking and active person who says, "I wish to operate my own tailoring business where I can produce many kinds of clothes with my own employees in the future."
