Mr. Batbold, 31 years old, lives with his mother and two brothers in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. The family resides in their own traditional Mongolian ger (a portable felt dwelling) on a plot of land. His mother retired from work in 2006, and his brother teaches at a kindergarten. He himself has been working as chief of a construction team since 2008.

At this time, the price of construction materials is at its lowest level, and he wants to use this opportunity to build his own house. So, he is requesting a loan of 3000000 MNT to purchase construction materials such as cement, bricks, gypsum and planks. As a result, he can begin his house building work in the beginning of spring.

The house will provide the family with a comfortable and warm environment. Also, the family will burn less coal due to their heat conserving future house. This is especially helpful to efforts against air pollution.

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.
