Batsaikhan, 31 years old, lives with his wife and daughter in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. They reside in their own house on land that belongs to Batsaikhan's mother-in-law. Batsaikhan has been working as a driver for three consecutive years at a private company. His wife is a cook and currently works at a kindergarten kitchen. Their daughter goes to kindergarten.

The interior components of their house are deteriorated. During wintertime, frost forms around the windows and wind seeps through the walls, which chills the family to their core. For this reason, Batsaikhan is requesting a loan of 2,000,000 MNT to purchase insulating materials such as fiberglass, foam, and cotton. Using these materials, he can insulate the walls of the house with fiberglass and other items. As a result, the family won't need to burn a lot of coal for heating. Reducing the amount of coal they use will release fewer pollutants into the atmosphere and contribute to efforts against air pollution. The borrower is a very hardworking individual who is striving 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.
