Byambadorj, age 35, has been working as an IT specialist since 2007. He lives with his wife and his three-year-old son in his brother’s house, which is in the ger district (a ger is a Mongolian nomad's yurt, or portable dwelling) in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia. Living in a ger is uncomfortable and cold, especially in winter. Byambadorj has always wanted to have his own apartment in the city. Recently he put in an order for an apartment with a construction company, but he needs money to cover the advance payment. This is a very important thing for his family, because they have never lived together in an apartment before. The loan Byambadorj is taking will be used to cover the advance payment for the apartment.

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.
