Mr. Ulziijargal, 55 years old, lives with his wife and son in Darkhan, the second largest city in Mongolia. The family resides in their own house on a plot of land. His remaining children all got married and live separately from their parents. He has been working as a watchman at a private business entity for three years. Before this job in 2000, he started rendering taxi services to the local people and accumulated vast amounts of experience in picking up customers, driving them quickly to their destination and shortening roads. His wife has a disability and gets disability pension from the state. His elder son transports goods between districts.

The house they live in has deteriorated over the years and needs some serious repair. So he is requesting a loan of 2,000,000 MNT to purchase building materials such as bricks, cement, planks, fiberglass and foam. Using these materials he can repair and insulate his old wooden house. As a result, the renovated house will enable the family to burn less coal, emit less smoke and 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.
