Share this story:

I spent eight years in Switzerland. One day, my mother called me: my father was very ill and she wanted me to come back to Mongolia to help her take care of him and provide for the family.

I took my kids with me and we left. It was a long time since I had set foot in my country. Everything had changed. My kids adapted well and after a few months they were able to speak Mongolian. But for me, I must say, starting a new life was hard. 

My mother already had experience working in the watch industry. With the family’s own resources and the additional support I received, we decided to open a watch retail shop. It is going well. We are now in the process of opening a second one. We are also planning to expand our activities and propose watchmaking lessons. 

I am happy to be back: I can see a future here.
