Mr. Bayarjargal, 28, works as an electrician in the power plant in Dornod, an eastern province of Mongolia. He is one of the skilled staff with six consecutive years of experience. Currently he lives with his wife and his two babies in his sister’s ger, a nomadic Mongolian traditional yurt. Recently he purchased a small plot of land with their savings for his family's needs. Then he started building a small house there. But suddenly he is faced with a shortage of money to buy the building materials. The building work is in the middle stages at the moment and he really wants to complete the outside work before this winter. With babies, living in a ger is very hard and cold in wintertime. He is planning to insulate the wall of his house with this loan.

About Credit Mongol

Its mission is to contribute to the prosperity of Mongolians by providing high-quality, affordable and varied financial services to micro-entrepreneurs and small-to-medium-sized businesses.

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.
