Mr. Battumur, 35 years old, lives with his family in Dornod, the easternmost province of Mongolia. His wife holds the position of instructional manager at a high school, where she has worked for four consecutive years. Battumur has been working as a furnace man at a heat and power plant for 13 years, and he is considered to be one of the most experienced and valuable workers at the plant, by his colleagues.

He is requesting a loan of 2,000,000 MNT to purchase building materials, such as bricks, cement and planks, which he will use to repair the barn. Because the barn is connected to the main house, its vulnerable walls and ceiling are the main reason for the freezing cold in the house. After repair of the barn, the house will not lose its heat from the door side. The repairs, financed with the loan, will enable the family to burn less coal, thus contributing to the efforts against air pollution by emitting less smoke. The borrower is a very hard-working individual, who strives for a better future.

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.
