Gal-Erdene's story

Mr. Gal-Erdene, 43 years old, lives with his wife and two children in Ulaanbaatar, capital city of Mongolia.

He began building a house in 2012 and, in autumn, his family moved into the house. Using his previous loan, he managed to purchase and install double-glazed windows into house, thus reducing heat loss through its windows.

His main family income comes from a taxi service he provides, using his automobile, and a salary his wife receives by teaching at kindergarten.

Now, he is requesting a loan of MNT 3,500,000 to purchase fiberglass, cement, foam, and hardwood flooring. Using those items, he wants to insulate his house in order to make his house a more comfortable and warm place.

In three months, the winter will come and it is known for its harsh and chilling character. His disabled son should maintain his health by living in a warmer place and getting one flu is critical for his life.

The borrower is a very hard-working individual who strives for a better future, for the sake of his children and his wife.
