Mrs. Terbish is 38 years old and lives with her only daughter in Darkhan, the second largest city of Mongolia. Her husband passed away many years ago. She has been working as a fuel distributor at a gas station since 2009. She also receives a state pension because she is now the head of the household. The apartment she and her daughter live in has been deteriorating over the years and is in need of some serious repair and insulation. So she is requesting a loan of 2,000,000 MNT to purchase materials such as gypsum, cement, fiberglass, and foam. Using these materials, she can repair and insulate her apartment, thus providing a comfortable and warm accommodation for her daughter. Moreover, she will use less energy for heating due to the renovation. 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.
