Mr. Batsaikhan, 43 years old, lives with his wife in Kherlen, an eastern town of Mongolia. The family resides in their own house on a plot of land. Batsaikhan has been working as a serviceman at a private business entity since 2005 and has a reputation as the most skilled worker. In 2012, his wife began working as a nurse, and in one year she became professional.

The kitchen of the house they live in has vulnerable walls and windows through which winds and storms seep and chill down the family to their core. So, Batsaikhan is requesting a loan of 1,000,000 MNT to purchase building and insulation materials, such as bricks, foam, fiberglass and planks. Using those materials, he will repair and insulate the house’s kitchen, thus reducing the use of coal, carbon emission, and also contributing to the efforts against air pollution.

Batsaikhan 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.
