Mr. Badamsambuu is 42 years old and lives with his wife and 4 children in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. He is the one who earns income for his family because his wife doesn’t have a job--she looks after their 4-year-old child at home. His other three children are in school. Badamsambuu has worked as a truck driver in a private freight forwarding company for several years and in his spare time he runs a taxi business using his car. These days he is very busy because he is building a new house on his plot of land. The house-building process is on-going with 60% completion. Before the winter comes he is trying to complete and move in to the house. Badamsambuu is asking for a 4,000,000 MNT loan to complete his new house. The loan he is taking will be used to install double-glazed windows, the roof and doors, to do plasterwork to the outside of the house, and to thicken the walls. This will allow his family to have a new spacious warm house with less energy loss and overcome the cold days of winter; it will bring them happiness every single day.

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.
