Khurelchuluun is 27 years old. Since last year, he has been working as a plumber in a company. When he has days off, he runs a taxi business.

Khurelchuluun lives with his father and younger brother in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. They live in a ger--a Mongolian nomadic tent--which is broken and became stale during the last July heavy rains. Khurelchuluun needs to change the covering, and possibly other parts, of his ger. He is taking a loan to purchase a new covering for the ger or other parts needed to make repairs to it.

Khurelchuluun plans to marry his girlfriend within the year, if he can.

About Credit Mongol

Its mission is to contribute to the prosperity of Mongolians by providing high-quality, affordable and varied financial services to micro-entrepreneurs and small-to-medium-sized businesses.

Uniquely, it offers solar panel loans to nomadic herders, most of whom live without electricity.

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.
