Mrs. Amartungalag, forty-six, runs a retail business in the market. She lives with her family in her old house which is in Darkhan, the second largest city of Mongolia. She has been running her business since 2000 and she started her business selling fruit and vegetables in the outdoor market. Then she expanded her business into the retailing toys and souvenirs in addition to the fruit sales.

Since 2008 she has been building a small new house on her plot of land using her business earnings. Now she needs to decorate the inside of her house and install a steam-heating system. She really believes this will contribute to reducing harmful coal usage and hence reduce air pollution around the cities. On the market, this system is a bit expensive. Therefore Amartungalag needed a loan to purchase the necessary materials for decorating her house and to cover the cost of purchasing the environmental steam-heated furnace.

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.
