Mr. Dulguun, 21, lives with his grandmother on their plot of land with a ger (a traditional Mongolian yurt) in Darkhan, the second largest city in Mongolia. Since last autumn, just after he graduated school, he has been working as a watchman in the metallurgy factor.

His grandmother is aged and in the winter time she always feels cold in her ger. Therefore, her grandson Dulguun decided to have a small house for them. He is planning to build his house this spring and summer. Also he has a plan of making insulation for the walls. As he said, it is very important and beneficial to cut the smoky coal usage in the winter time. It is also a good contribution to reducing the air pollution around the city.

It will cost about 1,300,000 MNT to buy the building materials for his new house. The loan he is taking will be dedicated to building a small house.

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.

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.
