Pagmatsogsmaa S. is a married woman with one child, living in Uvurhangay province. Uvurhangay is a one of Mongolia's southern provinces, located 400 km from the capital city, Ulaanbaatar. Pagmatsogsmaa and her family live in a "ger," which is the traditional, nomadic house in Mongolia. Her ger is situated in what is known as a “ger district,” an ad hoc settlement where many families live in gers near one another.

Since 2007 she has been running a food stall business with her own stall and employing one saleswoman. She buys candy, biscuits, cookies, chocolates, dried fruits, etc. from wholesalers and re-sells them. Her business income from the food stall is her family’s main source of income.

Pagmatsogsmaa has said in Mongolian: "I have a dream to have my own supermarket in the future". With the Lunar New Year celebration approaching, small items have sold quickly; therefore, she wants a loan to buy more food products for her food stall.
