Mr. Enkhbold, 28 years-old, lives with his family in Darkhan, the second largest city in Mongolia. The family resides in their own house on a plot of land. In 2004, he worked as a driver for a private business entity and in 2005, he went to Korea on a three year employment contract. After his return, he began working as a taxi driver at another private business. His wife used to work as a saleswoman at a store and recently went on maternity leave. The house they live in has deteriorated over the years and needs some serious repair. He is requesting a loan of 1,500,000 MNT in order to purchase insulation and building materials such as fiber glass, foam, bricks and plants. As a result, the family will live in more comfortable and warm place. The renovated house will not allow heat loss and enable the family to burn less coal thus contributing to the efforts against air pollution. The borrower is a 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.
