A loan of $2,550 helped to make some renovations before his wedding.

Buyanjargal's story

Buyanjargal is a 29-year-old single guy who lives with his mother in an outer ger district (a ger is a traditional Mongolian nomadic felt housing tent similar to a yurt) of the city. He has been working in a Korean restaurant as a chef while his mother works as a cleaner at a local police station.

He is prepared to live with his fiancee at his current house but his house is very cold during the winter season, so he needs to set up a heating system. "I don't want to live with my future spouse in the cold, uncomfortable condition because we plan to have a baby very soon," he said. Thus, this loan will be used to set up a heating system and to make some renovations on his old unsafe house.
