Mendsaikhan, 43 years old, lives with her husband and three children in an old house on fenced land in Erdenet, the third largest city of Mongolia. She has been working as an operator at a carpet factory since 2011. Her husband also works at the same factory and he has held the position of assistant overseer for over nine years. Their children all study at university.

She is requesting a loan of 4,000,000 MNT to buy building and insulation materials such as bricks, cement, fiberglass and foam. Her house has deteriorated over the years and she wants to renovate it before winter. After renovation, her family can live in a comfortable and warm place where they don't need to burn much coal for heating. The burning of coal is considered to be the main cause of air pollution and the reduction of it will contribute to the efforts against air pollution as less pollutants are released into the atmosphere. 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.
