Mrs. Tumennasan is 34 years old and lives with her husband and four children in Erdenet, the third largest city in Mongolia. Tumennasan has been running an auto repair shop for ten months and her husband works at a cement factory. The house her family lives in has deteriorated over the years and it needs some repair. Therefore, Tumennasan is requesting a loan of 2,500,000 MNT to buy bricks in order to renovate her house. By encasing her house with bricks, it will protect the house from the cold and storms. The renovated house will enable the family to burn less coal for heating and release less smoke into air, thus contributing to the efforts against air pollution.

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.
