Mrs. Munkhtsetseg, 41 years old, lives with her husband and children in Kherlen, eastern town of Mongolia. She has been working as a cook at a restaurant since 2011.

Her family resides in their own house on a plot of land. The house they live in has deteriorated over the years and needs some serious repairs. During the winter time, the family chills down to their core so they decided to make an extension to the house in order to reduce heat loss. In order to make the extension, she needs 1,000,000 MNT to purchase building materials such as planks, bricks and cement. As a result, the family will burn less coal thus contributing to the effort to reduce 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.
