A loan of $2,175 helped to buy wall-insulation materials to repair his bad house.

Enkhtuvshin's story

Mr. Enkhtuvshin, 26, operates a grocery store in a boundary district of Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. He lives with his wife and his child in the ger district, an area of nomadic Mongolian traditional yurts and houses. His family owns an old and small house which was built many years ago. Since it was built, there has not been any big repair or renovation to it. First of all, he wants to repair the walls inside and outside, because there is heat loss though the wall in winter. He uses coal in a large amount to heat his home. We know that using the coal is harmful and emits too much toxic smoke to the air. Air pollution has been one of the critical issues in Mongolia for years. Enkhtuvshin will use his loan to buy wall-insulation materials to repair his bad house.
