Erdenekhuyag is 38 years old and lives with his family in their wooden house in Ulaanbaatar, the capital. His house is located in the boundary area of the city with no water, minimal roads and spotty electricity. Erdenekhuyag‘s family consists of four people: himself, his wife and two children who are students. In 2008 they bought the land and built a 60-square-meter wooden house.
Since 2003, Erdenekhuyag has had a micro bus with 14 seats and with his wife runs a transportation business between Ulaanbaatar and a province 800 km away. He runs three times minimum in a month to Zavkhan province.
As his children grow the house is feeling smaller. Therefore Erdenekhuyag is planning to expand his house by building a new floor with wood and laying bricks on the outer side of the walls in order to stop the heat loss through the walls. By doing this Erdenekhuyag’s family can improve their living condition and will have a spacious house that will serve them the rest of their life.

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.
