A loan of $3,625 helped to purchase construction materials such as bricks, foam, fiberglass and cement, to use for insulating his family's home.


Bilguun's story

Mr. Bilguun, 27 years old, lives with his family in Darkhan, the second-largest city of Mongolia. Since 2008, he has been working at a steel mill. He began as a coal heaver, and then advanced his career by becoming an assistant, an operator, and now a shift foreman. His wife is an elementary school teacher, but now stays at home with their infant child, who is one year old. Their first son, four years old, goes to kindergarten. Bilguun's mother is retired from work and lives with them.

The family resides in their own house on a plot of land. As winter comes to Mongolia, the family is in urgent need of an insulated house -- if not, the mother and baby will be frozen to their core and may get sick. So Bilguun is requesting a loan of 5,000,000 MNT to purchase construction materials such as bricks, foam, fiberglass and cement.

As a result of the construction, the family will be able to live in a comfortable and warm place. At the same time, the borrower will be able to work without worrying about the well-being of his wife and children. Most importantly, an insulated house can conserve energy and keep its warmth, and it will reduce the consumption of coal, thus contributing to the efforts against air pollution.
