Mr. Batkhishig, 39 years old, lives alone in a Mongolian traditional ger (portable felt dwelling) in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. He has been working as a guardian at a private business entity where his elder brother has the position of auditor. The ger he lives in has been flooded with rain water recently, and the materials used for building the ger, such as planks and felt, became badly deteriorated. He is requesting a loan of 2,000,000 MNT (Mongolian tugriks) to purchase a five-walled Mongolian traditional ger. This five-walled ger is way better than his previous ger in comfort by providing more space and warmth by preserving heat, especially during the wintertime. He will use less coal for fuel and contribute to the efforts against air pollution. The borrower is a very hardworking individual who strives for a better future.

About Credit Mongol

Credit Mongol is the largest non-banking financial institution (NBFI) in Mongolia. Its mission is to contribute to the prosperity of Mongolians by providing high-quality, affordable and varied financial services to micro-entrepreneurs and small-to-medium-sized businesses.

Uniquely, it offers solar panel loans to nomadic herders, most of whom live without electricity.

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.
