Jargalsaikhan's story

Mr. Jargalsaikhan is 50 years old and lives with his wife and son in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. The family resides in a traditional Mongolian ger (portable felt dwelling) on a plot of land. His wife works as a nursing officer at a private hospital. He has been providing transportation services to local people using his own minivan since 2006. The minivan he uses for transportation is purchased with a leasing service. His son is 12 years old and goes to high school. Last year he began building a large family house on the plot of land. The house will be complete this summer because using his previous loan he purchased cement, bricks, planks and sand. However due to a lack of finances, he can’t afford to pay all the construction costs. He is now requesting a loan of 4,150,000 MNT to cover the costs related to building his house. These costs include but are not limited to paying workers, installing a heating and conditioner system and connecting to an electricity line. As a result, he and his family will be able to live in their long awaited house with happiness. Most importantly, the high quality house will have an impact on coal usage due to its heat preserving feature. Burning less coal has considerable positive effects on efforts against air pollution.
