      In 1984, Dugeree (62) has graduated from Polytechnic College in Irkutsk city of Russia as a mechanic. After graduation, he moved back to Mongolia and worked in Public Utilities Service Center of Baganuur District. Becoming more interested in entrepreneurship than his profession, he has established his “Esun Satsal” company in 1996. At first, the company sold variety of consumer products, and later in 2003, it has opened a new clothing shop in the district. Now, the shop has broadened to a specialized store which sells men and women clothing, shoes, camping equipment and apparel.

      Dugeree operates his business in Baganuur which is one of the remote districts of Ulaanbaatar. However, in recent years, the population of the district has significantly increased, and urban developments have been constructed. Also, as Baganuur is a west end of the capital city, tourists traveling to west provinces of the country pass by the district. Therefore, the market demand of clothing apparels for local citizens, and camping utilities for travelers keeps rising. Dugeree plans to open a new branch of the store to meet the increasing local demand.

      With a loan amount of MNT 25 million, he will be able to expand his business and open a new branch in Baganuur district. He will hire 2 more employees as sales assistants for the new store.

      Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are important contributors to job creation and economic growth in emerging markets. However, access to financing is a key constraint to SME growth, as about half of them don't have access to formal credit. In Mongolia, Golomt Bank serves nearly 80% of the corporate market. They were the first commercial bank in the country to issue small business loans. Golomt Bank accelerated the development of mobile banking in Mongolia by introducing smart banking services in the local financial sector.

      Financial support enables Mongolian entrepreneurs to increase their professional activity, resulting in job creation and improved living conditions.

      Golomt Bank is a member of the United Nations Environmental Program Finance Initiative (UNEP FI). This partnership helps create a financial sector that serves people and the planet and mobilizes private sector finance for sustainable development. The bank has a "Sustainable Development Policy" in which they implement the SDGs in all its operations. For example, improving their waste management, increasing the number of roads for wheelchair users in their offices, and cooperating with environmentally friendly organizations.
