Tsedensodnom, 53 years old, lives with her family in Dundgovi, in the southern province of Mongolia. The family lives in their own house on a plot of land. She and her husband raise livestock, and they are some of the best herdsmen in Mongolia. Their eldest daughter has a position of distributor at a catering company. Their second daughter works as a teller at a bank. Their third daughter is pregnant, and their youngest daughter studies at the university.

Over the years the house they live in has deteriorated and needs some serious repair. Tsedensodnom is requesting a loan of 2,000,000 MNT to purchase construction materials such as cement, gypsum and bricks. As a result the family can live in a comfortable and warm place. A renovated house has the benefits of not losing its heat easily and consuming less coal. Reducing the usage of coal will contribute to the efforts against air pollution.

Its mission is to contribute to the prosperity of Mongolians by providing high-quality, affordable and varied financial services to micro-entrepreneurs and small-to-medium-sized businesses.

Uniquely, it offers solar panel loans to nomadic herders, most of whom live without electricity.

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.
