Dugersuren is 37 years old and lives with his wife and three children, one son and two daughters, in their own house in Zavhan province, Mongolia. His wife is a salesperson in a private retail trading store. His twins, a boy and a girl, attend secondary school while the youngest child, age 3, goes to kindergarten. He operates a public transportation service between Zavhan and Ulaanbaatar, capital city of Mongolia. He started his business in 2002.

Since then he deposited and saved his earnings in order to buy a small plot of land where he built a house for their family. Before that he used to live in a ger, a Mongolian traditional nomadic housing tent, in someone else's backyard. Also he managed to renew his car twice with profits he earned.

Now he wants to finish the construction work on his house that has been left to be fixed in the future. He is a hard-working and honest man who says, "I am doing my best to better my family's living conditions." He is requesting a 3,000,000 MNT loan to purchase construction materials for his house.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
