A loan of $1,500 helped to purchase shingles and planks.


Munkhbayasgalan's story

Mrs. Munkhbayasgalan, 38 years old, lives with her husband and three children in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. The family resides in a house on a plot of land. She has been working as a bookkeeper in a building company for one year. Her husband provides taxi service to the local people. The house they live in was built last year. Due to a lack of capital, they haven't finished the roof. So she is requesting a loan of 2,500,000 MNT to purchase shingles and planks. After completing the roof repair, the family will live in a comfortable and warm place without worrying about the coming winter. Also they will burn less coal by minimizing heat loss through the roof. Reducing coal usage has a positive impact on the environment as fewer pollutants are released into the atmosphere.
