Munkhnasan is 28 years old and lives with his mother and sister in a one-room apartment in Darkhan, the second largest city of Mongolia. He has worked as a railroader since 2008 nonstop. His sister studies at a local university and his mother is a pensioner. His sister does part-time jobs and is now working as a waitress in a cafe in her spare time.

Munkhnasan is requesting a 600,000 MNT loan to replace his old wooden windows with double-glazed new ones because his house gets colder in the wintertime due to the heat loss through the windows. As a son who loves his mother, Munkhnasan doesn’t want to let her catch cold. By doing these improvements, his house will be comfortable and warm to live in, and most importantly his house will save energy, which passes through the windows.

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.
