Altanzul's story

Altanzul, 25, works as a electrician in a private company. He used to work as a builder for a few years. He has two children who are babies and who live with their grandparents in the countryside. Altanzul lives with his wife on his small plot of the land in the ger district (ger is a Mongolian traditional nomadic yurt) in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. His wife works as a receptionist in a hotel. Both of their salaries are low and usually do not meet their family's necessities. So, Altanzul also runs a taxi business on nights and weekends to earn extra income. He owns an old, small house on his land plot and lately it has been in very bad condition and cold to live in. It was built about 20 years ago and it has not had any major renovation or repairs. In winter it has a heat loss through the walls and windows. So he sent his children to his parents in the countryside. This summer he is planning to repair his house by installing wall insulation and building a small, one-room addition. It is very beneficial for his family to live comfortably and to stay warm at home. Every winter it costs much money to buy the coal to keep his house warm. He knows that it is harmful to his family's health and living environment. Also, he has a plan to build a small garage beside his home for his taxi car. Now he needs some money to buy the building materials for his house repair project.
