Mrs. Khorolsuren, 44, works in the television company as a janitress. She has been doing her job for many years and lives with her children and her husband in a ger, the nomadic Mongolian traditional tent. A ger is a portable, bent wood-framed dwelling structure traditionally used by Mongolian nomads in the steppes of Central Asia. The structure comprises a crown or compression wheel usually steam bent, supported by roof ribs, which are bent down at the end where they meet the lattice wall. The structure is usually covered by layers of fabric and sheep-wool felt for insulation and weatherproofing.

Her ger cover has been become very old and bad for covering. During winter, her ger becomes very cold. It is harmful for the health of her family members. Therefore, she is requesting a loan to cover the cost of a new ger-cover from the market.

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.
