A loan of $1,900 helped to purchase four camels.

Tilekbai's story

Tilekbai is forty-five years old and lives with his wife and four kids in a Ger (Mongolian yurt) in Bayan-Ulgii province in western Mongolia. His wife used to be a waitress, but now she is unemployed. His eldest kid is a college student and the three younger ones are school students.

He started his livestock and meat wholesaling business in 2005. He travels through rural areas and collects the livestock. Over the years, he has gained many regular customers and trusted suppliers. Now that the Mongolian holiday season is approaching, his demand is increasing. He needs to increase his supplies in order to meet demand. He is a sharp and hardworking man who says "Now that my kids are growing, I need to work as hard as I can".

He is requesting 2,500,000 MNT to buy four camels.
