Adiyannamjil is twenty-four years old and lives with his wife and a daughter in Western Mongolia. His wife is unemployed and his daughter stays at home with her mother.
Adiyannamjil runs a taxi service. He drives his own car to take passengers to their destination. But due to the unpaved road in Mongolia, his car is broken. It needs to be fixed because his business is the family's only source of income. He is a good-natured guy who says that "I would like to continue my business successfully and am hoping for expansion. I am the only person responsible for my family's livelihood and its income".
The total amount he is requesting is 1,800,000 MNT to replace his car's motor.
