Mr. Altantsog is a 30-year-old taxi driver. He lives with his wife and two children in Ulaanbaatar--the capital city of Mongolia. He started a taxi business this year. His daily income is not yet sufficient to purchase the new ger (a traditional Mongolian nomadic tent) which his family needs. They currently live in a small, old ger. It has become old and uncomfortable to live in.
Altantsog is taking a loan to purchase a new ger to improve his family's life.

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. It prioritizes serving remote, rural populations that have typically lacked access to credit and other financial services. 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.
