Tumur-Ochir is 53 years old and lives with his wife, two daughters, son-in-law, and grandson in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. The family resides in their old house on ring-fenced land.

Tumur-Ochir has been working as an electrician since 1999 at a private business where his wife is employed as a cook. His elder daughter currently stays at home looking after her 4-year-old son. His son-in-law previously worked in China on an employment contract, and came back to Mongolia in January.

The house this extended family lives in has been deteriorating over the years and needs some serious repair. Tumur-Ochir is requesting a loan of 7,000,000 MNT to purchase putty, paint, concrete blocks, bricks, cement, and sand. Using these materials, he can repair the old house so that it looks good and is energy efficient.

The renovated house will enable the family to burn less coal and emit less smoke, which will contribute to the efforts against air pollution. The borrower is a very hard-working 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.
