Bolor-erdene, 28 years old, lives with his wife and daughter in a traditional Mongolian four-walled ger (portable felt dwelling) on fenced land in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. He has been rendering taxi service to local people for seven years and during that time he has accumulated a vast amount experience in shortening routes and driving fast. His wife has a disability due to a factory accident and gets a disability pension. Their daughter is three years old and stays at home. He is requesting a loan of 2,600,000 MNT to purchase a traditional Mongolian five-walled ger. The five-walled ger is more comfortable and easier to keep warm than a four-walled ger. Last year, the family were chilled down to their cores as their old ger wasn't enough to protect them from frosts and snow storms. Once they move into their new five-walled ger, they will begin to burn less coal for heating, which is good for environment as less pollutants will be released into the atmosphere.

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.
