Oyunbileg Luvsan has a small butcher stall in the Huchit Shonhor market, one of the largest food markets in Ulaanbaatar. Since the beginning of her business in 2000, she has been selling fresh meat that she purchases from the wholesale markets. Her husband drives his truck to purchase and bring meat from the wholesale markets located outside the city.
Oyunbileg lives with her husband and two children in the Bayanzurh district of Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. Her older daughter is a 6th grader in the local high school and her younger daughter is just 4 months old. She and her family live in a ger (a round, nomadic tent). Her family is working hard to build a new home on their land in the near future. She requests a loan to purchase more meat from the wholesale markets for her business.
Every xmas and birthday I like to share my good fortune by giving to someone else. With Kiva, it’s a double gift because as the money is repaid, I can loan it again and again. I’ve made 25 loans now to people from all parts of the globe.
