Mr. Gombojav, 24 years old, lives with his wife and two children in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. He has been working as a manager in an advertisement and decoration business since 2011. His wife has a bachelor's degree as a programmer, but now cares for her children, 1 and 3 years old, at home. The family resides in a house on their own land. Gombojav has a spirit guide within himself and invokes in a separate ger (Mongolian traditional yurt).

As winter comes to Mongolia, the family's house becomes frozen due to vulnerable walls and doors and chills the family to its core. Gombojav is requesting a loan of 5,000,000 MNT to buy foam as an insulating material and a storm door. This will enable the family to live in a comfortable place and reduce their consumption of coal, thus drastically contributing to the efforts against air pollution.

About Credit Mongol

Credit Mongol is the largest non-banking financial institution (NBFI) in Mongolia. 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. It prioritizes serving remote, rural populations that have typically lacked access to credit and other financial services. Uniquely, it offers solar panel loans to nomadic herders, most of whom live without electricity.

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.
