Batmunkh, 38 years old, lives alone in his wooden house on plot of land in Ulaanbaatar, capital city of Mongolia. He has been working as a machinist at a power station since 1997 and is considered to be the best employee by his superiors. His wooden house is deteriorated and it needs some serious repairs. So he is requesting a loan of 7,000,000 MNT to buy building and insulation materials such as bricks, planks, cements, fiberglass and foam. After renovation, he can live comfortably and in a warm place. Also the renovated house will enable him to burn less coal for heating thus releasing less pollutants into atmosphere, contribution to the efforts against air pollution.

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.
