Mrs. Bayarjargal, 48, is requesting a loan to complete building her family house. She lives with her family in a ger district of Mongolian nomadic yurts in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia. She owns a small common apartment with 20 rooms on her land plot and she leases it to the citizens from rural areas. Currently her family is living in one of the rooms and it is not so spacious to live in with her big family. Last year, she and her husband decided to build their own family house and started it. But due to the money shortage, her housebuilding has been stopped in the last months. She planned to build her new house with wall insulation and to install an electric heating panel to assist or replace the coal-fired stove in winter. Now she needs to buy some building materials and an electric heating panel for building her family house.

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.
