Oyuntsetseg's story

Oyuntsetseg is 51 years old and lives with her husband and 21-year-old son. She has been a cleaner at a training center since 2000. Before that, she worked as a nurse at the Children’s Hospital. Her family lives in a small wooden house in the ger district, an area with no running water, minimal roads and erratic electricity, in Darkhan, the second largest city of Mongolia.

Mongolia is one of the coldest countries in the world and borders with Siberia to the north. So they need to use more coal to stay warm which is why Mongolia is one of the worst countries for air pollution.

Oyuntsetseg is planning to to prevent heat loss from her house by thickening the walls with materials such as cement, brick, and glass wool (fiberglass) batts. She is therefore requesting a loan of 3,500,000 MNT to thicken her house walls.
