Mrs. Bayasgalan is 31 years old, and she lives with her husband and daughter in a ger, a traditional nomadic tent, in the Uvs province of Mongolia. Her daughter Monhjin is three and goes to a local kindergarten. Her husband Zorigoo helps his wife's mother and sister in running their business of selling furniture in a local market.

Bayasgalan used to help her mother's business, and she has gained a lot of knowledge and experience in that business. She is now planning to start her own business of selling furniture -- in another market, in order not to compete with her mother. Her husband will help her run their family business.

She is now requesting a loan of MNT 7,000,000 to purchase a starting inventory for her new furniture sales business. She has good taste and sense in selection, and she is a hard-working lady.
