Tsendmaa, 40, is married and lives with her husband and two children in the Dornod province of Mongolia. They live in a house on a small plot of land that they have owned for the past five years. Tsendmaa's husband operates a transportation service and earns 250,000 MNT monthly from his business. Her older daughter attends a local high school and her youngest son goes to kindergarten.

Tsendmaa began operating a business making clothing in 2006. She decided to operate her own workshop as people are getting more and more interested in wearing traditional clothes such as deels, Mongolian traditional coats, vests, and traditional dresses for every kind of special occasion. Tsendmaa gets more custom orders during the holidays. Her current working capital is 1,200,000 MNT. She wants to further expand her business and have her own workshop in the future. Tsendmaa is a hardworking and modest person who says, "I want my children to have a good education. By making more profit, I would like to restore our house and have my own workshop." She is requesting a loan of 1,500,000 MNT to purchase more textiles and cloth for her business.
