Success Stories

Bayanhongor Aimag. Yak Dairy Factory

S. Bayarsaikhan is a native of Galuut soum in Bayanhongor province. He established a company to produce yak milk products in the soum, but could not afford production equipment. Bayarsaikhan applied to get a loan from the soum development fund, but the application was denied.

Then in early 2011, he heard about the RASP project. The project was supporting value added production and invited local businesses to submit project proposals. Bayarsaikhan's project proposal was approved and he received a subgrant to purchase nine types of dairy production equipment. The total cost of the equipment was MNT 17 million (about USD 13,000) and Mercy Corps agreed to finance 35% of the total cost.

Bayarsaikhan was also able to participate in other activities offered by Mercy Corps' RASP project: dairy production trainings and study tour to Arhangai to look at dairy products from the area. Since starting production, Bayarsaikhan's company has sold its products at local trade fairs.

In November 2011, the company won an award for being the "ecologically cleanest product" from the national small and medium enterprise development program "One Village One Product". And in 2012, the company's product won "Best Product" at the Khangai regional trade fair.

"Without Mercy Corps, it would have been impossible to start our dairy production which we dreamed of for some time"
