Mr. Batnyam, 31 years old, lives with his wife and two children in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. He has been working as a contract distributor in a bread-selling, state-owned company. His wife has a bookkeeping job in a private high school and recently took her maternity leave. The family purchased a plot of land where he built his house in 2008. As the winter comes to Mongolia, he is in need of repairing his home. So, he is requesting a loan of 5,000,000 MNT to buy a low-pressure cooker, a vacuum-sealed window, and some construction materials that are required for some interior repairs. The vacuum-sealed window and interior repairs shall reduce the home's heat loss, and they will also provide a comfortable living environment. In addition, the low-pressure cooker, especially during the winter, will reduce their consumption of coal drastically. As a result, the family will live in comfort and also contribute to protecting the environment.

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.
