Mrs. Narantsetseg, 50, works as a watchman in the common apartment. Her husband, Galbadrakh, is a taxi driver and he makes crafts and sells them to the customers in the bazaar for extra earnings.

Narantsetseg lives with her family in an old house which was built many years ago. The house has a heat loss and emission through its walls and some other parts. In winter they feel very cold and use the coal-fired stove to stay warm at home.

Before this winter, she wants to repair her house and make wall insulation to it. As she told us, “It will be very beneficial to reduce my cost of coal purchasing. Yet, it will be healthful to the environment (if) I could reduce the coal usage in winter.”

The loan she is taking will be used to buy the insulation materials such as the foam, cement, etc. to make the wall insulation to her old house before the winter.

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.
