Tuyatsetseg's story

Tuyatsetseg G. is a 33-year-old woman who lives with her husband and son in a "ger" in Mongolia (a ger is the traditional, nomadic form of housing in Mongolia; a ger district is where many people have settled in these homes, forming a sort of ad hoc suburb).

The family owns the land where their ger is located. Her son is 13; he goes to elementary school. She, Tuyatsetseg, runs a clothing stall with her husband at Narantuul, Mongolia's biggest outdoor market, in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city. During the fall, winter, and spring they sell gloves. In summer, they sell sunglasses. They own, rather than rent, their stall. They would like a loan to buy another stall in the clothing section of the Narantuul market. Together with her husband, Tuyatsetseg is planning to renovate her house this coming spring. She has a hard-working and humble personality.
