Geser's story

Geser is 52 years old and lives with his wife and two children. They live in their wooden house in the ger district, an area of the city with no running water, minimal roads and spotty electricity, in Kherlen, the third largest city in Mongolia. His son is studying at the university in Ulaanbaatar city and his daughter is attending secondary school. Geser's wife is a shop assistant at a local company, but a couple of months ago she had an operation on her stomach. Geser is working as a watchman and working 24 hours. After work he is resting 48 hours and during this time he is running a taxi business in his own car.

He is very thankful to Kiva lenders for helping to expand his living conditions. In the winter, his house passes its heat through the door and gets colder, so they need to use a coal-burning stove to stay warm. The coal burning is becoming the primary source of air pollution in Mongolia, so Geser is requesting 3,000,000 MNT to build a small barn where the house door meets with the outside. By doing this, he can reduce the heat loss in his house, he will burn less coal and his family will live in comfortable conditions.
