Mr. Batdelger, 32 years old, lives with his wife and children in Darkhan, the second largest city of Mongolia. They have two children: an 8-and a 3-year-old girl and boy. Batdelger is a skilled worker and works at a mining company, which is far from his hometown. At the moment, his wife doesn’t have a job, so she looks after the children at home. Until 2011, they lived in a rental house or in his parents' house. In the last year, Batdelger’s family bought a plot of land and has become “the real family” in the full meaning. Now, they are living in a ger, a traditional Mongolian tent. The ger is built on the ground and doesn’t have a fundament (foundation), so in the winter it may be cold if they don’t have additional furnishings. Because the frozen land can cause a chill from below the ger, Batdelger is requesting 1,500,000 MNT to make a foundation and buy a thick layer of wool felt for his ger. By doing this, he and his family will be provided with good living conditions and overcome the winter’s cold days.

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.
