Mr. Ravdanbat, 31 years old, lives with his wife and three children in Ulaanbaatar, capital city of Mongolia. The family resides in their own house on a fenced in land. He and his wife have been doing building decoration work through contracts with building companies since 2003. His three children all go to high school. He is requesting a loan of 6,800,000 MNT to cover the costs of purchasing building materials such as bricks, cement and metals as well as installing a heating system. During this period of time, the prices of building materials have reached their lowest rate and purchasing them now will save him a lot of money. More importantly, installing a heating system into the house will enable the family to live in a comfortable and warm place. As a direct consequence of a warm house the family will burn less coal thus contributing to the efforts against air pollution by emitting less smoke. The borrower is very hardworking 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.
