Narangarav has been working at a pet shop since 2009, and currently she looks after her newborn baby. Her husband works as a machinist at a local company. The family lives in an old small house, in which they have been doing some renovation work. They haven’t finished their renovation work yet; today Narangarav needs some bricks, wood, and other essential materials to finish her housing work. Therefore, she is requesting a 2,000,000 Mongolian Tughrik (MNT) loan to purchase construction materials.

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.
