Mr.Barsbold, 33, lives with his mother and a younger brother in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. His mother is a pensioner and his younger brother is unemployed at the moment. Barsbold is an engineer, and has worked for a construction company in the past. He now rents a restaurant and also runs it. The restaurant is made as a ger, a traditional Mongolian nomadic tent. It looks like a huge dome and has the capacity to serve 30 people at one time. It attracts customers, especially tourists, in the summer season. He is very enthusiastic about his new business and dreams of building his own restaurant someday. His customers are now increasing due to the forthcoming spring and summer seasons. He is asking a loan for replacing some kitchen appliances and for buying more products to increase his serving capacity.
