Delgerkhangai is 38 years old and has continuously worked as a driver in the military since 2010: his wife also works in the military. His family consists of five members: his wife and three children. They live in their small wooden house in the ger district, an area of the city with no running water, minimal roads and erratic electricity in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia.

By saving money, they bought a plot of land in a remote part of the city where they built their house. In winter, the heat goes out through the door and the house gets colder, so they need to use a coal-burning stove to keep warm. Coal burning is becoming the primary source of air pollution in Mongolia.

Therefore, Delgerkhangai is requesting a loan of 2,000,000 MNT so a small barn can be built where the house door opens outside. By doing this, the heat loss will be reduced, he will burn less coal, and his family will live in comfortable conditions.

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.
