Mrs. Choijkhuu, 36 years old, lives with her son in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. They reside in their own house on a plot of land. She has been working as a noodle packer at a noodle factory since 2011. Her son goes to high school and is currently in seventh grade. She divorced her husband seven years ago. The house they live in has been deteriorating over the years and needs some serious repair. She is requesting a loan of 4,000,000 MNT to purchase building and insulation materials such as bricks, cement, fiberglass, foam, and planks. As a result, she and her son can live in a comfortable and warm house after repairing and insulating their house using those materials. The renovated house will reduce their coal consumption and release fewer pollutants into the air, contributing to efforts to reduce 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.
