Dorjpalam's story

Dorjpalam, 37, is one of the skilful drivers in Mongolia. Now he works as a chief driver for a construction company. He lives with his wife and his two children on his own small plot of land in the ger district (a ger is traditional Mongolian traditional dwelling) in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia.

Dorjpalam's family owns a small old house and it has not had any repairs or renovation in last several years. It was built in the early 1990’s with uninsulated brick walls. In winter, his house becomes very cold and his children always get sick due to the cold. Because his house has a heat-loss problem, it costs him a lot to buy coal fuel every winter. In Mongolia winter is severe and freezing cold. Most of the households in the ger districts use coal and other kind of toxic fuels such as used tires, shoes, etc. As you know it is extremely harmful to peoples' health, the environment, and the air around the cities. As a result, Dorjpalam decided to put insulation in the walls of his house before this coming winter. Recently, the Mongolian government and many other people, institutions, and enterprises have been caring and starting some projects to decrease air pollution in the cities. The loan he is requesting will be used to buy bricks and foam to put insulation in the walls of his house. In addition, his co-workers and friends will support him in this project.
