Khishigjargal's story

Khishigjargal, aged 31, has worked in a medical center as a janitress for the past six years. Her husband works as an adjuster in a furniture manufacturing company in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. He operates a taxi every day after his job in order to earn extra income for his family. Their combined salaries do not meet their family's needs.

Khishigjargal lives with her husband and their two children in the ger district, an area of the city with no running water, minimal roads, erratic electricity and which includes the Mongolian traditional nomadic yurts, in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. Last June, Khishigjargal's family moved in Ulaanbaatar and bought a small land plot and a house in which they are now living.

The new dwelling has so many things that should be repaired or renovated. Firstly, the house has heat loss through its inside walls, floor, ceiling, windows and door. So, Khishigjargal needs to install wall insulation with foam boards and cement, and replace the windows and door. Then she will repair her floor and ceiling. As she believes her home will be totally warm and comfortable after the repairs, she will not need to use coal to warm her home. Also Khishigjargal knows that it is important to reduce the harm to her family's health and through environmental pollution from the smoke. Her requested loan will be dedicated to covering the costs of building materials needed for her home repairs and wall insulation.
