Mrs. Mungunchimeg, 26, is a receptionist in a private company. She lives with her husband and daughter in a house in the ger district, which is comprised of traditional Mongolian nomadic yurts and a few houses within the boundary of Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia.

Her family recently purchased a house which was built many years ago. Since she bought her house, there have not been any repairs or renovations. Her house loses heat through its thin walls and windows. In winter her daughter usually gets sick due to the chill at home. She uses the coal fired furnace to heat her home inside and it creates too much smoke both inside and outside. Therefore she is keen to make repairs and insulate the walls with bricks and other building materials. The loan she is asking for will be used to buy building materials and cover the cost of workers hired to repair her house.

About Credit Mongol

Its mission is to contribute to the prosperity of Mongolians by providing high-quality, affordable and varied financial services to micro-entrepreneurs and small-to-medium-sized businesses.

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.
