Mr. Batbayar, 25 years-old, sells second hand mobile phones and their spare parts from his rental stall in the phone mart. He started his business five years ago and he already has had some regular customers. He is divorced from his wife and now lives with his daughter and his mother in the ger district, an area of the city with no running water, minimal roads and spotty electricity in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia.

His family owns an old house which was built many years ago. Since it was built, there has not been any complete renovation to it. In winter, his house has too much heat-loss through its roof. He uses the coal-fired stove to warm the rooms but this creates harmful smoke in the air all around the city. As we are aware, air pollution is one of the critical and biggest issues in Mongolia and all over the world. Therefore, he has decided to decrease his usage of the coal and repair his house roof. He is asking for a loan for iron boards and some other building materials to repair his house roof.

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.
