Lkhagva, 58 years old, lives with his two sons in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. One of his sons works as a driver and explosive engineer at a mining company. His other son works in Korea on an employment contract and transfers money in urgent situations. Lkhagva himself has been working as a gate keeper at a kindergarten since 2008. The house in which his family resides has been deteriorating over the years and needs serious repair. Also, as winter approaches Mongolia, the automobile garage they use is in need of insulation.

Thus, he is requesting a loan of 6800000 MNT to purchase construction materials such as planks, panels, independent ceiling, doors, vacuum insulated windows, bricks, blocks, cement, sand, pebbles and an iron roof. As a result, his family will be able to live in a warm and comfortable home while parking their car in an insulated garage. Most importantly, his family will burn less coal to heat their house, thus contributing to the efforts against air pollution. Additionally, a car parked in a warm garage has the benefits of stable usage, lower fuel consumption, and lower probability of breaking down compared to automobiles parked outside.

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.
