Rina's story

Mrs. Rina, 57 years old, lives with her sister and son in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. She has retired from work and gets a state pension. Not wanting to sit idle, seven years ago she began working as a sentry at a high school. Her son, together with his colleagues, make house decoration for a living. Her sister, same as her son, was raised by her, and now works as a cook at a restaurant.

The house the family lives in is a small barn, and it barely withstands winter storms and frosts. She is requesting a loan of 5,500,000 MNT to purchase building materials such as planks, bricks, cement, metal and sand. Using those materials, she wants to make a large extension to her barn, as her son is getting married. More importantly, they will reduce their coal consumption and contribute to the efforts against air pollution by releasing fewer pollutants into the atmosphere.

In the future, she is dreaming about building a new house where she wants to live happily with her grandchildren. The borrower is a very hardworking individual who strives for a better future.
