Jamiyankhorol, 46, lives with his wife and children in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. The family resides in their two flat brick house on a plot of land.

Jamiyankhorol has been selling coal to local people after purchasing the coal from a mining company during winter, spring and autumn. In the summer, he sells sacks of sand and grit. His wife also sells building materials by renting a stall at a trade center.

Jamiyankhorol has recently begun making extensions to his brick house in order to create more space and comfortable living conditions, so he is requesting a loan of 7,000,000 MNT to purchase building materials, such as bricks, cement, planks, gypsum and fiberglass. As a result, his family will live in a comfortable and warm place. The renovated house will then enable the family to burn less coal, emit less smoke and then contribute to the efforts against air pollution. Jamiyankhorol 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.
