A loan of $1,825 helped to cover the cost of building materials to make extension or insulation to her small house.

Baasankhuu's story

Baasankhuu is 47 years old, and she sells small home appliances at shopping center. She has been running her business for six years successfully.

She lives with her husband and her two kids in an old house that was built many years ago. Her house is small and suffers heat loss in winter always through its walls and door. Therefore she decided to make an extension to her house with the bricks and cement. It will reduce the heat loss further, and her house will be warmer after the repair. She thinks that it will let her cut her coal usage in the future.

The loan she is taking will be used to cover the cost of building materials to make extension or add insulation to her small house.
