Mrs. Tsetsegmaa, 48 years old, lives with her husband in a traditional Mongolian ger (a portable felt dwelling) on plot of land in Ulaanbaatar, capital city of Mongolia. She has dispensed water to local people on behalf of the state water department for five years. Her husband works in the construction field.

She is requesting a loan of MNT 3,000,000 to purchase insulation materials such as fiberglass, foam, and felt in order to renovate her Mongolian ger.

By doing so, her family will live in a comfortable and warm place where they will no longer burn much coal for heating. A drastic decrease in coal consumption has positive effects on environment as fewer pollutants will be released into 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.
