Bujigmaa's story

Mrs. Bujigmaa, 47 years old, lives with her family in Ulaanbaatar, capital city of Mongolia. Her son provides taxi services to local people by using his own car. One of her twin daughters has been working as a specialist at a supermarket since 2009, and other one runs her own business. Her daughter-in-law sells clothes at an outdoor market. She herself has been working as a doorkeeper at an electricity and heating station since 2004. Her two grandchildren go to kindergarten.

This extended family resides in their house on a plot of land surrounded with fences. The fences are built with planks. As winter come to Mongolia, strong storms may break down the fences. Additionally, wooden planks are prone to fire, whether accidental or on purpose. They also deteriorate over the years. So they have decided to replace the planks with blocks in order to strengthen the fences. Advantages of block fences are an invulnerability to fire and the ability to keep the family warm by blocking the winds. People with wooden fences repair them by simply cutting forest trees. In order to protect the forest, block fences are encouraged everywhere. Mrs. Bujigmaa is requesting a loan of 4,000,000 MNT to purchase blocks. As a result the family can live in a safe place without the fire hazard of wooden fences.
