Otgonchimeg's story

Mrs. Otgonchimeg, 32 years old, lives with her husband and two sons in Ulaanbaatar, capital city of Mongolia. The family resides in a Mongolian traditional 'ger' (portable felt dwelling) on a plot of land. She has been working as a waitress at a private business entity for four years. Her husband is employed as a carpenter by a wooden products sales company. Her elder son studies at high school while her younger son is at kindergarten.

During winter time the family are chilled to the core due to living in an old deteriorated Mongolian traditional 'ger'. So this year, they began building their own house but couldn't finish it due to lack of finances. So Otgonchimeg is requesting a loan of 6,000,000 MNT to purchase building materials such as planks, bricks, cement and metal shakes. If she can complete her house, their children can live in a comfortable and warm place. The high quality house will enable the family to burn less coal, releasing less carbon dioxide and thus contributing to the efforts against air pollution. Living in a house is way better than living in a 'ger' in terms of both warmth and comfort. The borrower is a very hardworking individual who doesn't want her husband and sons to be chilled to the core in harsh wintertime.
