Mrs. Dulamsuren, 53 years old, lives with her husband in Darkhan, the second largest city of Mongolia. The family resides in their own house on a plot of land. Her two children live separately from their parents and are both married. Her husband has been running his excavator renting business since 1998. From March to October, her husband rents his excavator to others. She herself has worked at a flour mill since 1980. In 1995 the flour mill stopped its operation so she lost her job. In 2008, she began working as a distribution manager at a private business entity and also works as a manager at a foreign language learning center. The house they live in has deteriorated over the years so she is requesting a loan of 6800000 MNT to renovate and insulate her house by purchasing necessary construction materials such as bricks, press board and cotton. As a result, the family can live in a comfortable and warm place. An insulated and renovated house doesn’t lose heat thus reducing the consumption of coal. Decrease in coal usage in one household is a significant contribute to the efforts against air pollution.

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.
