Mrs. October, 27 years old, lives with her husband and mother in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. She works as an accountant for a local bank and her husband renders a taxi service. Her mother works at a company that sells cosmetics. She has been working for four consecutive years in the banking sector, moving from teller to accountant. As winter comes to Mongolia, their home and automobile are freezing, so they decided to build a garage next to their house. The garage will keep the car unfrozen and stop the house from losing its heat. The constantly frozen car has several disadvantages such as emitting harmful chemicals into atmosphere and using more natural gas to operate. She is requesting a 2,000,000 MNT loan to buy construction materials and hire builders. If the garage is built, it will benefit many things such as the family's wellbeing, house heating, automobile operation and most importantly the environment.

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.
