Mrs. Batchimeg is 48 years old and lives with her husband and son in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. The family began living in their own house when she purchased it in 2005. Her husband has retired from work and gets a state pension. Her son is a driver at a private business entity. She herself has been working as a nurse at a privately owned hospital for six consecutive years. Since the day she purchased her house, the house has never received any repair and update. So she is requesting a loan of 6,900,000 MNT to purchase building and insulation materials such as bricks, planks, fiber glass and cements. Using those materials, she can repair her house thus enabling her family to live in a more comfortable and warm place. More importantly, the renovated house will preserve heat efficiently, needing less coal for fuel, and as a result emit less smoke and that will contribute to the efforts against air pollution. The borrower is a very hardworking individual who strives for a better 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.
