A loan of $2,100 helped to purchase building and insulation materials for repairing the old house.


Gantumur's story

Mrs. Gantumur, 45 years old, lives with her son in Kherlen, a town of eastern Mongolia. The family resides in their old house, on a plot of land. She has been working as an equipment operator at a building company since 2006. Until 2012 her employment was part time, and in 2013 she became employed as a full time staff member, increasing her salary and covering food and other, work-associated, costs. The house that Gantumur and her son live in has deteriorated over the years, and it needs some serious repairs. So she is requesting a loan of 3,000,000 MNT, which she will use to purchase building and insulation materials, such as planks, bricks, concrete, fiberglass and foam. Using these materials, she herself can repair and insulate her house, thus creating a comfortable and warm place. The renovated house will enable the family to burn less coal, emit less smoke, and thereby contribute to the efforts against air pollution. The borrower is a hardworking individual, who wants to see her son live well and happily.
