Update on DavaasurenDavaasuren, 31 years old, lives with his wife in a Mongolian traditional ger (portable felt dwelling) in Ulaanbaatar, capital city of Mongolia.
He has been making and selling souvenirs to China since 2009. Last summer he began building a house on his land but he has stopped, due to lack of funds. He requests 5,000,000 MNT to buy building and insulation materials such as bricks, cement, fiberglass and foam. After finishing his house, his family will live in a comfortable and warm place. Living in a house is much better than living in a ger. A high quality house will greatly reduce the consumption of coal and will have less heat loss through walls and windows. The main cause of air pollution in Mongolia is the burning of coal and therefore, a decrease in coal usage will impact the air quality.
Previous Loan DetailsDavaasuren keeps doing his business and his business is going quite well. He has fully repaid his previous loan in October as scheduled. During this period he never missed a due date. Ever since Davaasuren has been cooperating with Kiva, some changes have occurred in his life and business. No... More from Davaasuren's previous loan »
