Mr. Dashdavaa, 20 years old, lives with his parents in Darkhan, the second largest city in Mongolia. He has been rendering taxi services to local people since 2011 and is contributing to the family’s income. His mother sells dairy products at a lower price than market price. His father travels a lot because of his profession as a building engineer and is currently working in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia.

He is requesting a loan of 4,000,000 MNT to purchase building materials such shingles, bricks and planks in order to upgrade the house roof. The house roof has deteriorated over the years due to strong wind and snow, and it is the main gateway for heat loss from the house. So changing the roof will stop heat loss, and thus enable the family to burn less coal for heating.

This will have a positive impact on the environment, as fewer air pollutants will be released into the air.

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.
