Mr. Nyamjargal, 34 years old, lives with his wife and son in Darkhan, the second-largest city of Mongolia. He has been working as a coal preparer in a steel mill for three years. Before working in Darkhan, he worked in a coal mine. His wife works as a seller in a local supermarket. The family resides in their own house on a plot of land. Their son goes to kindergarten.

As winter comes to Mongolia, the badly damaged house they live in becomes vulnerable to storms and frost. So they decided to insulate the house, as well as do some interior repairs. In order to make it happen, they are requesting a loan of 5,000,000 MNT to purchase construction materials, such as bricks, foam, fiberglass and cement.

Insulating their house will decrease the family's coal usage, contributing to environmental protection by reducing smoke emissions. Nyamjargal is a very hard-working individual, who strives for a better life, together with his family.

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.
