A loan of $4,100 helped to buy an electric car.

Byambadorj's story

Mr. Byambadorj, 30 years old, lives with his pregnant wife in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. He has been working as a serviceman at a building company for one year. His wife will get to work next year. Now he is requesting a loan of 7,000,000 MNT to buy an electric car for personal use. The advantage of an electric car is that it contributes to cleaner air in cities because it produces no harmful pollution at the tailpipe from the onboard source of power, such as particulates (soot), volatile organic compounds, hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, ozone, lead, and various oxides of nitrogen. As his wife is about to give birth, the frequency of visiting the doctor will increase and transporting his wife safely to the hospital is the top priority for him.
