Batzorig is 25 years old and lives with his wife and a three year-old child in his parent’s house in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. His parent’s house locates in a boundary area of the city with no running water, minimal roads, and spotty electricity. Batzorig has been renting a cell phone repair counter and sells phone spare parts in the downtown area of the city for 7 years. Every six months, he goes to China’s nearest border to buy phone spare parts.

His wife is a student, but this year she is not studying because she is pregnant and will give birth in November. As he and his wife are expecting a baby, Batzorig has been building a new house on the land of his parents for his family and the house is 80% complete. The loan Batzorig is taking will be used to buy radiators and insulate the roof, floor, and walls with energy saving materials in order to stop the heat loss. If his new house will be warmer, less energy will be burnt. By doing this he and his family will improve their living condition and can cut the usage of coal to warm his 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.
