A loan of $1,150 helped to purchase wood for the upcoming season.


Javzanpagma's story

Javzanpagma, a 34-year-old hardworking woman, lives with her family in a ger (a traditional Mongolian felt tent) in a ger district which lacks basic infrastructure in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. Her husband is a driver for a local gas company, having previously worked for a public transportation company for nine years.



Javzanpagma started her business in 2005 by selling building materials at Tsaiz, the largest outdoor wood market in Mongolia, with a working capital of 2,000,000 MNT. She buys raw materials from a wood truck which comes from the countryside, and as a result of her hard work, she now has working capital of 7,800,000 MNT.



Javzanpagma is requesting a loan of 1,500,000 MNT to buy more wood for the upcoming season. Her business is very popular during the summer time, so she wants to purchase more wood as a reserve. Javzanpagma wants her children to get an excellent education and her goal for the upcoming year is to build a new small house for her family. A repeat and trusted client, she is very thankful to all Kiva lenders for giving her an opportunity to improve her business.
