Gerelmaa's story

Gerelmaa, 34 years old, lives with her family in Ulaanbaatar, capital city of Mongolia. The family is now residing in a Mongolian traditional ger (portable felt dwelling) temporarily on a fenced in land. She has been running a clothing sales business since 1999 and accumulated a vast amount of experience. In 2007, she and her husband went to Korea on an employment contract, but returned to Mongolia to give birth to their second child. During the summer time when most construction work takes place, her husband works at a construction site.

In January, 2013, the house they used to live in burned down due to an accident and they were forced to stay in a Mongolian traditional ger in harsh winter time weather. Now the price of building materials is reaching its lowest level and buying them will benefit the family greatly. So she is requesting a loan of 6,800,000 MNT to purchase building materials such as bricks, cement, planks, iron and plates. Compared to the Mongolian traditional ger, a house enables the family to burn less coal, emit less smoke and it contributes to the efforts against air pollution. The borrower is very hardworking individual who strives for a better life.
