Mr. Erdenebaatar, 30 years old, lives with his wife in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. The couple resides in a traditional Mongolian ger (portable felt dwelling) on fenced land. He graduated from medical college in 2007 and since that he has been working as a dental technician in a private pharmacy. His wife has the same profession but is currently unemployed and stays at home. He is requesting a loan of 6,800,000 Mongolian tögrög (MNT) to purchase building materials such as bricks, cements, grindstone and sand in order to build a house foundation and walls. As winter is approaching, he is preparing to build a house which is far better than traditional Mongolian ger in both preserving warmth and living comfort. Also moving from a ger to a house has economic and environmental advantages because reduction in loss of heat results in less use and purchase of coal. The burning coal is the main source of air pollution in Mongolia. The borrower is very hardworking individual who strives for a better future together with his wife.

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.
