Tsagaantsooj's story

Mrs. Tsagaantsooj is 57 years old. She lives with her husband and son in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. Her son Jamyan is 34. He works for a private company. Her husband, Tumur, is 58. He receives a disability allowance and stays at home. Mrs. Tsagaantsooj works at a cashmere factory as a cleaner. She has three more children who live separately with their families. Last year, Mrs. Tsagaantsooj started building a family house. It is 70 percent complete. The house was built with wooden beams. Some of the walls are covered with basalt wool for insulation purposes. Now she needs to buy more building materials to finish the building work by putting insulation under the floor, on the walls, and under the roof. The Mongolian winter is one of the harshest in the world, reaching minus 45 degrees at night. Therefore, houses need to be well insulated. A well-insulated house burns less charcoal, emitting less poisonous smoke into the air. The loan will be used to buy basalt wool, metal sheets, cement, bricks, and other necessary materials to insulate the house well and complete the housing project.
