Mr. Amgalanbaatar, age 37, runs a taxi service around the districts of Darkhan, the second largest city in Mongolia. He has been running his business for two years. His daily earnings do not always pay for his family's necessities.

He lives with wife and son in their house, which was built in the early 1980s. His family has been living in this house since it was built, and they have never made any improvements to it.

Lately his house has become very uncomfortable. It has become cold during winter and many parts are damaged. Therefore, Amgalanbaatar decided to make renovations to his house and he needs to purchase the necessary building materials to make these renovations. Then he will install a smokeless furnace in his living room.

In the last several years, smoke and air pollution have become big issues in Mongolia. It comes from the slum district households that use coal and old cars in the cities.

The loan Mr. Amgalanbaata is requesting will be dedicated to making renovations to his house and to buying a new smokeless furnace from a certified supplier.

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.
