Mr. Baatarjav, 54 years old, lives with his wife and son in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. He has worked for the military service for almost thirty years and recently retired from work. His family's income is composed of his retirement pension and his wife’s and son's salaries.

In 2002, they moved to their current apartment, and since then they haven't made any repairs or added insulation to their home. So, he is requesting a loan of 7,000,000 MNT to purchase vacuum-insulated windows, hardwood floors and fiberglass. He will replace the old windows and floors with more durable and quality ones. As a result, during wintertime, the frosts and storms won't chill down the family to its core. This way it will spare more energy and contribute to the environmental cause.

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.
