His spouse works in a local bakery and all three of their children attend secondary school. Previously, his family was living in a traditional Mongolian felt tent. Now the family lives in a new small house, which they built. In Mongolia, the winter is very cold, and he needs to install a heating system in his 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.
