Mrs. Gantuya, 52 years-old, lives with her father, sister and son in Erdenet the third largest city of Mongolia. The family resides in a Mongolian traditional ger (portable felt dwelling). Her father is retired and receives a state pension. Her younger sister has been working at a private business since 2007 and, from 2013, she has been promoted to the position of accountant. Mrs. Gantuya herself has been working as a chemistry teacher at a school for 29 years and has accumulated a vast amount of experience. Her son is unemployed and now stays at home.

Even though the family owns a house next to their traditional Mongolian ger, they don't live in their house because the house has deteriorated over the years. The interior walls and windows have became so fragile they do not protect the family from incoming storms and frosts. Therefore, she is requesting a loan of 5,700,000 MNT in order to purchase building and insulation materials such as fiberglass, cotton, foam, bricks, cement and planks. Using these materials, she can make an extension to her house and insulate the interior walls and windows. As a result, the renovated house will enable the family to burn less coal and contribute 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.
