Mrs. Uuriinbayar, 33 years old, lives with her husband in Ulaanbaatar, capital city of Mongolia. The couple lives in their old house. She has been working as a voice producer in a private television enterprise for five years, and her husband renders taxi service.

As winter comes to Mongolia, the old wooden house of theirs seems like it can’t withstand the harsh climate. Window glasses are all frozen, and constant wind blowing makes the house very drafty and uncomfortable. In addition, the floor becomes all shattered and the house is completely cold in every corner. So she is requesting a loan amount of 2,000,000 MNT, to buy insulating materials and vacuum-insulated windows. Once their house is insulated, she and her husband can work enthusiastically.

Its mission is to contribute to the prosperity of Mongolians by providing high-quality, affordable and varied financial services to micro-entrepreneurs and small-to-medium-sized businesses.

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.
