Tsengelmaa's story

Tsengelmaa, 38, lives with her husband and two children in her wooden house in the ger district of Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. This area has no running water, minimal roads and spotty electricity. Tsengelmaa has been a mathematics teacher in secondary school for seven years. Her husband runs a taxi business. This summer, her family built a house, but it is not finished. They need more construction material. So before the winter she is planning to reconstruct her house and to thicken the walls with materials that keep the heat as long as possible. She will use brick to thicken house walls from the outside and basalt wool from the inside. By doing this, she can cut the use of charcoal by several times compared to her current house. She is requesting a 5,000,000 MNT loan. The loan Tsengelmaa is taking will be used to thicken her house walls and to repair her house.
