Gongorjav Gantogtokh offers buuz, Mongolian steamed dumplings filled with meat, at her restaurant in Dalanzadgad, the capital of Umnugovi province in southern Mongolia. Rising inflation and closed borders forced Gongorjav to increase prices, replace some ingredients and reduce staff. She tries to provide her staff with a full salary, even as her customers and profits dwindle.
