A loan of $2,875 helped to purchase jeans to sell for the upcoming season.

Chimgee's story

Chimgee is a 36-year-old married lady who lives with her family in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. They live in a ger, a traditional Mongolian felt tent, in the outer ger district (a district without basic infrastructure). Chimgee’s son and daughters are both secondary-school pupils.

Chimgee supports her family by operating a retail clothing stall at the largest indoor market in Mongolia. When she first began her business in 2008, Chimgee had 800,000 MNT (Mongolian tugriks) in working capital. Today, her business has grown, and she has about 11,000,000 MNT in working capital.

Chimgee sells jeans and trousers. “I really appreciate the Kiva loan, because it helps entrepreneurs to increase their working capital and improve their business and also their living conditions, so I'm applying [for a] Kiva loan again” she says.

Chimgee is requesting a loan of 4,000,000 MNT to increase the variety of jeans and trousers she sells because, as she says, "it’s the time of high shopping season in Mongolia."
