Melsbek's story

Melsbek, 35 years old, lives with his wife and two daughters in Erdenet, the third largest city of Mongolia. His family has recently purchased an old apartment. His elder daughter studies at high school while the younger one goes to kindergarten. He has been rendering taxi service to local people since 2001 and accumulated a vast amount of experience in picking up customers and driving them quickly to their destination. His wife has been working as a crane machinist for twelve years at a copper enrichment facility. He is requesting a loan of 6,000,000 MNT to purchase hardwood floors, vacuum insulated windows, wallpaper, paint, fiberglass and foam in order to renovate his old apartment. By doing so his family will live in a comfortable and warm place where energy is preserved efficiently.
