Tuvshuntugs is 22 years old and lives with her husband and son in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. Her husband runs a transportation business between regions. She works as an interior decorator at a private construction business entity. Their child attends kindergarten. Over the years, the apartment they reside in has been deteriorated badly and needs some serious repairs.

Tuvshuntugs is requesting a loan of 55,00,000 MNT to cover the cost of water closet improvements, plumbing updates, purchase of ceiling, vacuum door and floor heating system installation. Installing a floor heating system will be beneficial as sometimes heat distribution from the heating station stops. Also ceiling and vacuum door installment can help a lot in keeping warm. As a result, the heat loss from door side will be stopped and the apartment will better retain heat. The couple will then have no fear of their son getting cold and can work enthusiastically for their future.

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.
