Mrs. Saruul, 38 years old, lives with her two daughters in an old house on a plot of land in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. She has been working as a cook in a restaurant for three years. Her two daughters both go to high school. The house they live in has deteriorated over the years, and it needs some serious repair.

So, she is requesting a loan of 8,000,000 MNT to buy building and insulation materials, such as bricks, planks, cement, fiberglass and foam. Using those materials, she will repair and insulate her house, creating a comfortable and warm place where her family will burn less coal for heating, thus releasing fewer pollutants into the atmosphere.

The borrower is a very hardworking individual who strives for a better future.

About Credit Mongol

Credit Mongol is the largest non-banking financial institution (NBFI) in Mongolia. 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.
