Myagmarsuren's story

Mrs. Myagmarsuren is 51 years old and lives with her family in Erdenet, the third largest city of Mongolia. She and her husband reside in a Mongolian traditional ger (portable felt dwelling) on her son’s yard. At the same time her son’s family takes shelter in a deteriorated house. Her husband has been working at the department of urban development for five years. Her son has recently begun working as a driver at a private business entity. She herself has been working as a janitor at a high school for eight years and before this job, she worked for twenty-eight years at a public service organization.

In order to improve her family’s living standard, she wants to build a house on her son’s yard. Compared to a Mongolian traditional ger, the house will be more spacious and better at heat preservation. She is requesting a loan of 1,500,000 MNT to purchase cement, bricks and planks to build a house. As a result, in harsh winter time, the family can live in a more comfortable and warmer place. The most important aspect of building a house is that it enables the family to burn less coal thus contributing to the efforts against air pollution by emitting less smoke. The borrower is very hardworking individual who strives for better future.
