Mrs. Dugarmaa is 61 years old and lives with her husband in a small house in the Arhangai province of Mongolia. They are retired. Her husband's name is Tserendorj, and he helps with her business. She started her own felt-production business in 2005. She bought a new workplace in the ger (Mongolian housing tents) district. The ger district is not connected with social heating systems in Mongolia, where the peak cold weather reaches minus 40 degrees. To fight the coldest weather, she is planning to purchase a gas stove to heat her workplace for better working conditions. Therefore, she is requesting a 5,000,000 Mongolian tugriks (MNT) loan for that purpose. She is an honest and hardworking woman.
