A loan of $2,175 helped to complete an extension to the family home.


Bat's story

Bat, 54 years old, lives with her family in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. Her husband works as a bus driver between Ulaanbaatar and Ulan-Ude, capital city of Buryatia, Russia, for a private company. Their four children work in Ulan-Ude, mainly in the construction industry. Bat herself formerly worked in boot factories but in 2009 she retired and has been receiving benefits. Also she cares for her daughter’s girls at home. The family resides in their own house on a plot of land and this summer they began to build an extension to their house. But due to their financial situation the family has not completed the extension and as winter comes to Mongolia, it will become a source of heat loss. So Bat is requesting a loan of 3,000,000 MNT to complete the extension. As a result, the family will be able to live in a warm and comfortable environment; furthermore they will burn less coal and thus contribute to efforts against air pollution.
