Mrs. Tserendolgor, 50 years old, lives with her husband in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. She and her husband built their own house on a plot of land. Her daughter lives separately from her parents, on her own. She has been working as an attendant at a private business entity since 2011. Her husband renders transportation service between Ulaanbaatar and other cities. The house they live in is vulnerable to heat loss and to strong storms, due to a deteriorated and weak curb roof. So she is applying for a loan of 2,400,000 MNT to buy planks, fiberglass and cement. Using these materials, her husband can repair the curb roof of the house, thus stopping the loss of heat through the roof. Stopping heat loss will enable the family to burn less coal, emit less smoke, and thus contribute to the efforts to combat 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.
