Battulga's story

Battulga, 28, is married and lives with his wife and three children in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia, residing in a two-room house in his father's backyard on the outskirts of the city. Two of their children attend a local primary school.

Battulga began making Mongolian traditional boots in 2006, assisted by his wife while taking care of the children at home. They manufactured the footwear by hand until they bought a sewing machine for 365,000 MNT in 2010, a purchase that has made their job much easier. The boots they now produce are both traditional and modern styles which are bought by both Mongolians and foreign visitors. Battulga and his wife currently have one employee who earns a salary of 150,000 MNT per month.

Their business has expanded little by little and will continue to grow. Battulga is a hardworking person and caring father who says, "We have our sewing machine and we need to have our own workshop in the future." He is requesting a loan of 700,000 MNT to buy leather and other necessary materials for his boot-making business.
