Tsul-Erdene is 27 years old, and lives with his parents aged 66 and 62, who are retired at the moment. They live in a private house in a ger district of Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. Tsul-Erdene is not married. He started a construction and decoration business and a taxi service business in 2007 and is still running them. The ger district is not connected with social heating systems in Ulaanbaatar city, where the cold weather reaches minus 40 degrees at its peak. To fight the coldest weather, Tsul-Erdene is planning to purchase a gas-stove to heat the house and provide better living conditions. He is requesting a 5,000,000 MNT loan for this. His parents say about their son: "Our son is a honest and responsible person ... we always support him with our hearts."

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.
