Narantuya is 45 years old, and lives with her husband and two children in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. She has been transporting students of a particular high school from their homes to school for ten years. Her husband is a carpenter and crafts and sells wooden products. Their two children are both students at university.

This summer, she and her husband began to repair their old house by dismantling its roof and windows as well as some walls. But due to finance, they couldn't finish their renovation, so she is requesting a loan of 4,700,000 MNT to buy necessary planks, shingles, vacuum insulated windows, as well as an iron door. After renovation, her family will live in a comfortable and warm place without worrying about the oncoming winter. Also they will begin burning less coal for heating, thus releasing less pollutants 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.
