A loan of $1,425 helped to purchase building and insulation materials.

Burenbuyn's story

Mrs. Burenbuyn, 35 years old, lives with her husband and son in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. The family resides in a Mongolian traditional ger (portable felt dwelling) on a plot of land.

Burenbuyn has been working as an accountant at a private business entity since 2006, and is considered to be one of the skilled staff by company managers. Her husband has been rendering taxi services to local people for six years and has accumulated a vast amount of experience in where to pick up customers and how to shorten routes.

Burenbuyn and her husband began building a house on their land last autumn. They completed the main components of the house, but due to lack of finances, they haven't finished their house. Living in a house is way better than living in a ger for comfort and warmth. During the harsh wintertime, they burn tons of coal in order to heat their Mongolian traditional ger.

So, Burenbuyn is requesting a loan of 2,000,000 MNT to purchase building and insulation materials, such as bricks, planks, cement, fiberglass and foam. Using these building materials, she and her husband can finish their house and after that, insulate their house with fiberglass. The resulting high-quality house will enable the family to burn less coal, release less smoke and then contribute to the efforts against air pollution.

The borrower is a very hardworking individual who doesn't want her husband or son to chill down to their cores during the harsh wintertime.
