Mr. Taivanjargal, 36, is a taxi driver and has been running his business for six continuous years. He lives with his old father, his wife and his daughter in his father’s old house, which is in the slum district of Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. His daily income usually does not meet his family's expenses.

Taivanjargal wants to renovate his old house, which was built in the early 1960s. It is broken and has been becoming old for years, especially its most core parts such as the roof, walls, floor and the wall insulation, which became bad and was removed. Therefore, he deiced to take a loan to purchase some building materials to renovate his old house. He thinks that after renovation, the house should become well-insulated from the cold weather, and coal usage and emission of smoke will be much reduced; then, it will reduce air pollution around the city, too.

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.
