Mr. Sukhbaatar, 42, lives with his family in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. The family resides in their own house which was built in 2012. Mr. Sukhbaatar has been running a transportation business on a two year contract with a transportation entity. He uses his own minivan and his wife executes the role of conductor.

The house Mr. Sukhbaatar and his family live in has vulnerable external windows, walls and doors. As a result, the house becomes very cold during the winter time and chills the family down to their cores. Mr. Sukhbaatar is requesting a loan of 2,000,000 MNT to purchase building materials such as bricks, cement, planks, and fiberglass. Using those materials, he can renovate his house and will live in a comfortable, warm place. More importantly, the family will burn less coal thus contributing to the efforts against air pollution.

Mr. Sukhbaatar is a very hardworking individual who strives for a better future.

About Credit Mongol

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.

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.
