Delgertsetseg, 35, lives with her husband and daughter in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia. Until recently her husband worked in Korea for many years as an employee for a private contractor. She has worked as a computer saleswoman for the past seven years, and her superiors praise her work ethic. She is a very hardworking individual who strives to realize a better future.

When Delgertsetseg’s husband came back to Mongolia, they bought an apartment with walls and a balcony in bad shape. The windows and walls are thin and flimsy, and in wintertime lots of frost forms around the windows.

Delgertsetseg is applying for a 7,000,000 MNT loan through Credit Mongol to buy cement, vacuum-insulated windows, fiberglass, foam and hardwood floors. With these materials she and her husband can make much-needed repairs to their apartment. Once they do, the apartment will be far more comfortable and warm, and their heating bills will go down.

About Credit Mongol

Credit Mongol is the largest non-banking financial institution (NBFI) in Mongolia. Its mission is to contribute to the prosperity of Mongolians by providing high-quality, affordable and varied financial services to micro-entrepreneurs and small-to-medium-sized businesses.

Uniquely, it offers solar panel loans to nomadic herders, most of whom live without electricity.

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.
