A loan of $375 helped to purchase briquettes.


Taivanjargal's story

Mr. Taivanjargal, 37 years old, lives with his wife and daughter in a traditional Mongolian five-walled ger (portable felt dwelling) on land where his brother and father live in separate houses in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. His wife is unemployed and his daughter goes to high school. He himself renders taxi services five days each week. At first, he worked as a contract driver by using the organization’s car as a private business entity since 2005 and accumulated a vast amount of experience. Then in 2007, he transferred car ownership to his name and began rendering a taxi service. He is one of our most reliable clients and has used his previous loan for repairing his house, which belongs to his parents. When his parents came back to live in Ulaanbaatar, his family moved to a traditional Mongolian ger on the same land.

He is requesting a loan of 500,000 MNT to purchase briquette, which will be used for cooking. There are many advantages to using briquettes, including its unique property of creating no smoke, soot or carbon deposits while burning; long burning duration compared to its original condition; more efficient than firewood in thermal value; and low value ash content; and is also renewable because it is made with organic materials, which are common. All of the above-mentioned advantages will help the efforts against air pollution in Mongolia.

The borrower is very hardworking individual who strives for better future.
