Bolormaa, 30, is a seamstress in a private tailoring company. She has been working since last year. She is unmarried and lives with her retired parents and her two kids in the slum district of Darkhan, the second largest city in Mongolia. They own an old house which was built early in the 1970s. The walls, roof, and floor need to be insulated and the plumbing system needs to be replaced.

After renovation the house should be well insulated from the cold weather and coal usage and emission of smoke will be much reduced. At the same time it will reduce air pollution around the city. Therefore a loan will be dedicated to purchasing the necessary building materials such as bricks, pipes, wood planks, paints and some insulation materials for her old house renovation.

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.
