Altantsetseg's story

Altantsetseg, 51, works as a cook in the cafeteria in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia. She has had the job for two years and usually she has a high workload. She lives with her family in her house in the ger district. Mongolian traditional yurts and poor housing are in this boundary district of the city. Lately, her house has worsened with age. Since she bought it, there have not been any major repairs or renovation. Her house loses heat through its thin walls and windows. In the winter, her children usually get sick due to the chilly house. She uses the coal-fired furnace to heat her home inside and it creates too much smoke inside and outside of the house. Therefore, she is eager to make repairs and improve wall insulation with bricks and other building materials. The loan she is asking for will be used to buy the building materials and pay for hired workers to repair her house.
