Mrs. Darim is 62 years old and lives with her three daughters in Ulaanbaatar, capital city of Mongolia. The family resides in their own house on a plot of land.

She has been running a grocery store for three years and has accumulated a vast amount of experience. Her grocery store is located in a central city area and over the years, she has secured permanent customers.

Now, she is requesting a loan of 7,000,000 MNT to purchase building and insulation materials, such as bricks, cement, fiberglass and foam, as well as to pay for house renovators. As a result, she and her daughters will live in a comfortable and warm place.

More importantly, due to the renovated house, the family will reduce their coal consumption; thus releasing less pollutants into the atmosphere, which contributes to the clean air efforts.

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.
