Munkhzul is a 32-year-old widow. She is living with her daughter, her mother and her brother’s family. Those six people live in a small apartment in Erdenet, the third largest city of Mongolia. Erdenet is an industrialized city. Her daughter, Oyuntulkhuur, is 10 years old and is studying in secondary school.

Munkhzul has been working as an operator in an ore-dressing enterprise, since 1999. A few months ago, her brother started work as a millwright in Oyutolgoi, Umnugovi Aimakh, approximately 600 km from the city of Ulaanbaatar.

It’s very difficult to live with her brother’s family in a small apartment. That’s why she started to build a house for her brother's family. Her brother’s family income is not enough. Munkhzul is a very kind person. This autumn she started to build a house in blocks. Now she needs more money to buy construction material such as roof material, double-glazed windows, doors and the necessary material for interior decoration.

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.
