Mr. Amgalan, 51, is a taxi driver, and he is taking a loan to complete his new house building. He has been operating his taxi business for seven years nonstop and he has gained a lot of experience in it. All of his children moved out and now he lives with his wife in a ger, a nomadic Mongolian traditional yurt in Ulaanbaatar, which is the capital city of Mongolia. His wife is a teacher. He is planning to add insulation to the walls, and it will be helpful to cut the usage of the coal-fired furnace and to live warmer at home. He is also planning to insulate the roof hollow due to the heat loss through it.

So he is requesting a loan to pay for the building materials such as foam, rock wool, and cement to make the insulation for his new family house.

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.
