Tavitai's story

Tavitai is 41 years old and lives with his wife and 3 kids in Hovd province of Western Mongolia. His wife works as a shop assistant and his kids study at the high school. He used to run a taxi service between the cities and then started the wooden products business. The business went well because he gained enough experience and gained some profits which was spent on building his working space. He is well known for his talent to craft wooden products. He makes them based on the customers' order and interests. His further plan is to expand the business by purchasing needed tools for the business and to save for his sons college fees. He is a talented man who says that "I would like to expand my business and make it easier by using more tools and hiring someone". The total amount he is requesting is 1,500,000 MNT for the carpenter tools.
