Sainsanaa's story

Mr. Sainsanaa, 37 years old, lives with his wife and three children in Ulaanbaatar, capital city of Mongolia. The family resides in their own house which was built last autumn. In June 2012 he began running newspaper, magazine and mobile phone sales, renting a shop at a trade center.

Currently his wife is operating this shop because in October 2012 he began purchasing heads and intestines of livestock from brokers and then cleaning and classifying them. In the end he sells them to customers and some outdoor markets. Also he uses some of them in his family's daily food. One time he said that by using livestock intestines in food, the family really decreased their food expenses significantly. Even though he has been running his intestine sales business for just three months, he has already attracted quite a number of clients.

The house they live in is incompletely built and in wintertime, it really loses its heat, and as a result the family gets chilled to their core. The house needs its roof to be covered with metal, walls to be insulated both from inside and outside, and floors to be molded. So Sainsanaa is requesting a loan of 2,000,000 MNT to purchase metal, glass cotton, bricks and cement. As a result, the family will be able to live in a comfortable and warm place and most importantly, the house will preserve its energy and enable the family to burn less coal, thus contributing to the effort against air pollution.

The borrower is a very hardworking individual who greatly cares about his children's education.
