Mr. Nanzaddorj is a 54-year-old widower with three daughters and two sons living in a ger (traditional felt housing), in Tosontsengel, Zavhan province, Mongolia. His wife has died last month.

He started his business of manufacturing consumer products out of recyclable metals in 2002. He produces stacks, stoves, and metal sinks by using dumped or broken metals and scrap metals. He produces high-quality, low-priced products because inventory of products is a lot cheaper and available everywhere. Customers like his products better than others.

In 2010, he also started planting vegetables in a garden and sells during the winter when the price is the highest of the year. He also pays his daughter's university tuition from his profit.

He is requesting a 3,000,000 MNT loan to build a storage pit for a reserve of harvested vegetables for his family and to sell during winter.

He is a hardworking, talented, and modest man who says that, "I need to work harder than ever to let my children grow healthy, educated and well-prepared for life, since all the responsibilities (are) on me now."

More information about this loan

This loan is part of XacBank's green loan program, giving Mongolian farmers the support they need to grow and process organic fruits and vegetables despite harsh conditions and short growing seasons. These loans are used to obtain critical resources, like greenhouse space to shield crops from the cold, and training for traditionally nomadic entrepreneurs who lack agricultural experience.

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.
