Mrs. Erdenetsetseg, 55, has run a retail business with her small company during the last three years. She lives with her family in the 'ger' district, an area with no running water, minimal roads and spotty electricity in Ulaanbaatar, which is the capital of Mongolia. Her family owns a small plot of land and a very old house.

Recently she started a family house on her land plot and it will be built by the "balks". But her house building work has been stopped for a month due to money shortage. Currently, she needs some money to replace the insulation in the walls and floor. As she plans, it will be warmer and convenient to live in her new house after putting in insulation. The loan she is taking will be dedicated to paying for wall insulation materials and a new warm floor.

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.
