Mrs. Amartsengel is 42 years old and lives with her family in Kherlen, the biggest city of the eastern province of Mongolia. She has been working as a bookkeeper in a local private company since 2008, and her husband, Namsrai, has been running a taxi business in his home town. They have two children: a 13 and 10-year-old girl and boy. Before the collapse of the Soviet era, Amartsengel had worked as a tailoress in the local community service center and her husband worked as a border guard. Amartsengel’s family lives in a small wooden house with thin walls, so their house gets even colder in the winter time. As you know, Mongolia is one of the coldest countries in the world and borders with Siberia to the north. Before the winter comes, Amartsengel is requesting a 5,000,000 MNT loan to build a new capacious house with less heat loss. She says that her new house will create a warmer atmosphere and bring happiness to her family every single day.

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.
