He makes various types of products, such as furniture, dishes, vases and shelves. The house his family lives in has deteriorated over the years and needs some serious repairs, so he is requesting a loan of 5,300,000 MNT to purchase building and insulation materials, such as bricks, planks, fiberglass, foam and gypsum walls. Using those materials, he can repair and insulate his house, thus enabling his family to live in a comfortable and warm place.

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.
