Mr. Khurelbaatar is 31 years old. He lives with his wife, three children, and mother-in-law in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. His wife looks after the kids. Khurelbaatar has been running a taxi business since 2008, and it is the family's only source of income.

In 2008, Khurelbaatar's family suffered a big loss when the ger (a traditional Mongolian nomadic tent) in which they were living burned down completely. The cause of the fire was bad electrical wiring. They currently live crowded into Khurelbaatar's mother-in-law's ger. Since the disaster, Mr. Khurelbaatar has been saving money to buy a plot of land and a ger. At the moment, he needs some extra money to fulfill his plan.

Our institution's "green loan" product supports families in buying traditional Mongolian nomadic felt-covered tents made from sheep's wool. The loan Khurelbaatar is requesting will be used to supplement his payment in buying a plot of land and a ger.

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.
