Oyuntsetseg is 45 years old and lives with her husband in her small house and land plot in the ger district (a district of traditional Mongolian nomadic yurts) in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. They have one son and one daughter, both whom have moved out their parents' home. Oyuntsetseg works as a conductor at the bus station. Her husband, Erdenebat, runs a taxi business and has been operating his business for many years as a skillful driver.

Oyuntsetseg is taking a loan to install a bio-toilet in the backyard of her house because she thinks it will be good for the health of the environment and the people. In the Mongolian market, bio-toilets are quite expensive and there are few suppliers. Currently, her family uses an old wooden toilet and it is very harmful to the ground and air. The 3,000,000 MNT loan she is requesting will be dedicated to covering the cost of a good quality bio-toilet for her home.

About Credit Mongol

Its mission is to contribute to the prosperity of Mongolians by providing high-quality, affordable and varied financial services to micro-entrepreneurs and small-to-medium-sized businesses.

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.
