Mrs. Odbaatar, 43, is one of the skillful and experienced teachers of secondary school in Mongolia. She has been teaching for 23 years nonstop and has had thousands of pupils in that time. She is always proud of her students.

Mrs. Odbaatar lives with her two sons and her husband in a small, old house in the ger district of Mongolian, which is comprised of traditional nomadic yurts, in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia. Her husband works as a watchman and doesn't earn enough to pay for the family's necessities. Her house was built in the early 1990’s and is not a spacious place to live. In addition to this, Mrs. Odbaatar's house becomes cold and loses heat through the walls in the winter.

So Mrs. Odbaatar decided to make insulation for the walls and create an extension by adding one more room to her old house. As she said, "My house will be warm and comfortable after the renovation." She is asking for a loan for the purposes of making wall insulation and the house extension.

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.
