Oyuntuya's story

Mrs. Oyuntuya, 32, lives with her husband and her two younger children in a ger, a Mongolian traditional nomadic tent. She is a tailor and works in the leather clothes factory in Darkhan, the second largest city in Mongolia. She has been doing her job for seven years and her salary does not meet her family's expenses. Her husband, Erdenebat, 32, is a builder and does not earn enough money.

This time she is requesting a loan to cover the cost of new sheep wool felt covering for her old ger. In winter her ger becomes cold because it does not have a good covering. Her two children always have flu due to the cold at home. Her choosen ger cover is made from traditional sheep wool and is insulated with breathable material which holds the warmth for a long time. She knows that with this cover, it will cost less to heat the house with coal in the future. The loan she is taking will be used to cover the cost of purchasing the new ger cover so it stays warm in her house and so as to reduce the smoke to the air from her ger.
