Orkhontuya's story

Orkhontuya is a 29-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her husband and two children, ages 6 and 11, in Ulaanbaatar city, Mongolia. The family lives in a ger, or a traditional Mongolian felt tent, in the outer ger district of the city. Her elder son attends a local secondary school, and her daughter attends kindergarten while their father works at a geological company.

Orkhontuya supports her family by operating a women's clothing retail stall at the largest outdoor market with rental stalls. She has been running this business since 2002. In 2006, she bought a small stall and increased her working capital. Today her working capital is approximately three million MNT. Usually, she imports her products from Ereen, a border city between Mongolia and China.

Orkhontuya is requesting a 1,200,000 MNT loan to purchase a variety clothing to sell at her own small stall. “I’m really thankful to all Kiva lenders for giving me an opportunity to improve my business. I will work hard”, our trusted client Orkhontuya said.
