Ganbaatar, aged 50, lives with his family in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. He has been making and selling ornament boxes to local people for 19 consecutive years and he likes his profession. After graduating from university, his son can contribute to the generation of family income by working.

The family lives in an old house on a plot of land. Their house has been deteriorating over the years and, especially in winter time, family members are chilled to the bone due to the vulnerable walls and door. So Ganbaatar is requesting a loan of 5,000,000 MNT to purchase building and insulation materials such as bricks, planks, fiberglass and foam. Using these materials, he can repair and insulate his house thus providing comfortable and warm accommodation for his family. Renovating the house will enable the family to burn less coal thus emitting less smoke and contributing to the efforts against air pollution. Ganbaatar is a very hard-working 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.
