      Erdenet city is the second largest city in Mongolia, after capital city-Ulaanbaatar and it has 110 thousand citizens. Because of the air pollution and excessed population density in the capital city, more people are encouraged to move to the other cities, such as Erdenet city. Hence, the city is developing rapidly in recent years and many new buildings and apartments are being built.

      In 2011, Davaadorj Norson, 45, established his wholesale company to facilitate the development of building industry in the region. He and his wife Bayarjargal operate the business which brought all building materials salesmen together under the one roof, which has become the biggest regional building materials store now. This way, not only they can reduce the product logistics cost, but also they are promoting the local economy.

      Davaadorj is utilizing the business opportunity by filling the logistics gap of wholesale market. Transporting construction materials each time from Ulaanbaatar city caused additional cost for the rural developers and created additional hurdle for the regional development. Davaadorj now became one of the main wholesale provider in Erdenet city, providing 16 staff a permanent job place.

      The loan proceeds will be utilized for acquiring necessary inventory for the coming construction season to be started from April. The company will hire additional 3 salesmen and fill the working capital gap with the 140 million MNT.
