Mr. Munkhbaatar, 45, is a transportation driver for a private company. He started his job this year in this company but has been working for many years as a driver. Munkhbaatar lives with his son and wife in a ger, the nomadic Mongolian traditional tent, in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia.

Last fall, he started building his own house beside his ger but could not finish it due to a lack of money, especially to purchase the necessary building materials to complete the house. He wants to finish it before this winter. Now he just needs to complete some parts of it such as windows, doors and wall insulation. Therefore, he will use his loan to purchase the building materials necessary for his new house. After the building is completed, he is planning to run a grocery store on the first floor of 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.
