Erdenebat is 44 years old, married, and has four children. He lives in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia. He and his wife run a pants and boots sales business. Even thought they began their business one year ago, they attracted quite a number of customers and now it is one of the income sources for the family.

In 2006, he purchased a plot of land and built his own house. The house they live in has a roof problem. In rain and snow, the roof does not protect the house from leaking. The house is also small and as his children grow he decided to add one room to his house.

Erdenebat is requesting a loan for 4.500,000 MNT, which he will use to purchase construction materials needed for roofing and adding a room. Construction materials needed include bricks, planks, cement, and iron. As a result, the family can live in a comfortable and warm place without fear of leaks. The fortified roofing will also stop the heat loss so that family will burn less coal thus contributing 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.
