Mrs. Chuluungerel, 27, runs a taxi around Kherlen, an eastern city in Mongolia. She has been operating her business for the last few years. Her husband works in Korea as a laborer to earn extra profit for his family. Currently Chuluungerel is living with her 2 children in her old and bad house which was built many years ago.

Lately her house has been bad and losing heat through its door and windows. In this response she must burn too much coal to warm her home in winter. Her two kids always get sick due to the cold inside the home. Therefore, she decided to build an entrance room to her house. As she thinks anyhow, the house will be warmer after the extension, which will protect from the cold air or wind. The loan she is taking will be used to buy the building materials to build an entrance room to her old 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.
