Mr. Bolorerdene, 30 years old, lives with his wife and two children in a get (a traditional Mongolian home) in his father-in-law’s fence. He works as a taxi driver in a private taxi enterprise and his wife washes glass containers in a local hospital.

As winter approaches, the couple wants to insulate the walls of their ger. By insulating the walls, the ger will be a warm place for family to live. As a result of insulation, the ger's heat loss will be reduced, and in turn the family will decrease its consumption of coal, contributing to environmental protection. He requests a 1,000,000 MNT loan to buy materials which will be used to insulate the walls of his ger.

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.
