Namjargal, age 26, lives with her mother in an old and deteriorating house in a fenced area in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. She has been working as a cook in a restaurant since 2009. Her mother has retired from work and gets a small state pension.

The house they live in has deteriorated badly over the years and needs some serious repair. For this reason, Namjarga is requesting a loan in the amount of 3,000,000 MNT. She will use her loan funds to purchase building and insulation materials such as bricks, cements, fiberglass, and foam. Using these materials, she and her mother will repair and insulate their house. This will allow them to live in a warm and comfortable home where they can burn less coal and release fewer pollutants.

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.
