Ulaanbaatar
Mr. Ulaanbaatar, 34 years old, lives with his wife and two children in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. He has been selling consumer goods since 2006 and brings his goods from a China border town. His wife works as a janitor at a private firm.

He is requesting a loan of 5,000,000 MNT (Mongolian tugriks) to purchase shingles, fiberglass, foam and vacuum-insulated windows. Using those materials, he will renovate his old house and then his family will live in a comfortable and warm place. The renovated house will enable the family to burn less coal for heating, thus releasing less pollutants into the atmosphere.

Its mission is to contribute to the prosperity of Mongolians by providing high-quality, affordable and varied financial services to micro-entrepreneurs and small-to-medium-sized businesses.

Uniquely, it offers solar panel loans to nomadic herders, most of whom live without electricity.

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.
