Nansalmaa's story

Mrs. Nansalmaa, 48 years old, lives with her husband in an old cement house on a small plot of land in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. She has been selling underwear and lingerie at Mongolia's biggest outdoor market for more than 20 years.

The house Nansalmaa and her husband live in has deteriorated over the years so she is requesting a loan of 8,300,000 MNT to buy vacuum-insulated windows, hardwood floors, shingles, fiberglass, planks, bricks and cement for house renovation. Nansalmaa is reaching her fifties, and she doesn't want to live in an uncomfortable and cold place. This loan is very important to her as old people are more vulnerable to the cold.
