Mr. Gereltsogt, 37, owns a used minivan and runs a passenger transportation business with his wife. He has been operating this business for a decade nonstop and has gained a lot of experience. His business is kind of seasonal and in the summer he usually has a small number of customers. Gereltsogt lives with his wife and his three children in a common apartment in a ger district of Mongolian nomadic yurts in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia.

His living apartment was built in the socialist era and it does not have separate toilet rooms; it only has earth closets on the outside. As we know, this is very harmful and unhealthy for the environment and the health of inhabitants. So, Gereltsogt and his neighbors jointly decided to install a sanitation system including large iron pipes, container, and other building materials used to install the soil sanitation system.

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.
