Dagvasuren is a 46-year-old married man who lives with his wife and daughter in a ger, a traditional Mongolian felt tent, in the ger district of Ulaanbaatar city, Mongolia. This district lacks basic infrastructure.

He has been working as a minivan driver since 1992. As of 2010, he owns a minivan. Currently he operates his business with special help from his wife. They have one daughter and their daughter attends a local institute.

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.
