Mr. Lkhagvasuren, 43 years old, lives in his own house on a plot of land in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. His wife studies Korean at the university and, during her free time, she does part-time work. He himself has been working as a machinist since 1994, and he is considered to be one of the most experienced workers in his employer’s company. He is applying for a loan of 6,000,000 MNT to buy and install a composting toilet in the bathroom. Using composting oil will remove any ugly odor from the atmosphere, reduce water consumption, and have other benefits. Those are the just the few examples of the advantages of a composting toilet. These environmentally-friendly toilets are the main need in households where central sanitation is not available. The borrower 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.
