A loan of $2,950 helped to purchase some necessary building materials to add insulation to his house.

Munkhsanaa's story

Mr. Munkhsanaa, 31, is a plumber and taxi driver. He has been working as a plumber since 2005 and also runs a taxi service when he has days off because his salary as a plumber does not meet his family's needs. There are three people in his family, including his daughter and wife. They live in a ger (a nomadic Mongolian traditional tent) located in Darkhan, the second largest city of Mongolia.

Last February, he started building a new house on his land, but it is still not finished in due to the lack of money for purchasing some necessary building materials. The building is approximately 70% complete, especially the wall insulation materials such as tapestry bricks, bead and steam-heated floor. Adding insulation to the walls is important to reduce the harm from coal fuel use. Otherwise he will use the electric-heating system in his house instead of the coal used chimney. According his plan, he will finish his house building before this winter if possible.
