Sarantuya
Mrs. Sarantuya, 50 years old, lives with her husband in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. The family resides in their own house on a plot of land. Her husband has been making building masonry, plumbing and welding. She herself has been working as a chief cook at a military base for eleven years. The house the family lives in has deteriorated over the years and needs some serious repair. So she is requesting a loan of 5,000,000 MNT to purchase building and insulation materials such as bricks, planks, cements, fiberglass and foam. Using these materials, her husband can repair and insulate the house, making their home a more comfortable and warmer place. More importantly, the renovated higher quality house will enable the family to burn less coal, emit 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.
