Tsengelmaa's story

Mrs. Tsengelmaa, 48 years old, lives with her husband in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. The family lives in their own house on a plot of land. She has been teaching kindergarten since 2002 and, during her free time, she also washes clothes and linens. Her husband has been rendering transportation services to local people, using his own truck. Their children all live on their own and sometimes gives them cash or foodstuffs to help them. The house they live in was built last year, but the walls and roof of house are vulnerable to strong winds and storms and, in the harsh wintertime, the family chills to their cores. So she is applying for a loan of 5,000,000 MNT to buy building and insulation materials, such as cement, paint, fiberglass, foam and cotton. Using those materials, she and her husband will insulate their house, and this will make their home a more comfortable, warmer, place. The renovated house will enable the family to burn less coal, emit less smoke, and thus contribute to the efforts against air pollution. The borrower is very hard-working individual who strives for better future.
