Mrs. Dulamsuren is a 46-year-old widow who lives with her four children in Kherlen city in Dornod Aimag, far eastern Mongolia. Until 1997, she worked for the local city council, then decided to go into business running a meat shop. She has been in this business long enough now to have established suppliers and customers, and some of her children also help her. Unfortunately, one of her children was hit by a car a few years ago and is now blind.

Dulamsuren is a very determined and hard-working woman -- last year, for example, she personally erected the frame for a new home for her family. She still has much work ahead of her before it will be a comfortable place to live in during the harsh Mongolian winter. She is planning to put foam insulation in the floor, walls and roof and complete the house before summer. She has applied for this loan to buy the materials she needs to finish work on her house.
