She has been running a furniture making workshop for thirteen years and employs two people. Last year, the house she lived in was burned down and only four walls remain. Now she and her daughter are residing in a traditional Mongolian ger (portable felt dwelling).
As winter is approaching Mongolia, she wants to build a new house on the remains of her old house. To do this, she is requesting a loan of 7,000,000 MNT to purchase building and insulation materials such as bricks, cement, fiberglass and foam.
Using those materials, she can make her old house more comfortable and better at retaining warmth. As a result, the house will no longer lose its heat and the family will burn less coal, thus releasing less pollutants 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.
