Alimaa's story

Alimaa, 53 years old, lives with her family in Ulaanbaatar, capital city of Mongolia. She has been rendering printing, copying and photography services to local people for a year and is quite experienced in this field. She also earns income by renting her restaurant. The house her family lives in has been deteriorating over the years and needs some repair. So she is requesting a loan of 1,000,000 MNT to purchase building materials such as bricks, planks and cement. Using these materials she will repair her house. The renovated house will preserve heat more efficiently and enable the family to burn less coal, emit less smoke and contribute to the efforts against air pollution. The borrower is a very hardworking individual who strives for a better future.
