Mrs. Altantsetseg, 43 years old, lives with her husband and son in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. The family resides in a brick house on a plot of land. She has been doing house interior decoration for almost ten years, and usually works on contract with building entities. Her husband has a profession of field engineer and currently works at a mining company. Her son is enlisted in the military service.

Recently Altantsetseg has begun making an extension to her house by adding one story. But due to lack of finances, she and her husband haven't finished building the second story. So she is requesting a loan of 7,000,000 MNT to purchase vacuum insulated windows, hardwood floors, shingles for roofing, and insulation materials.

As her son became a grown up man and is soon getting married is the main reason for making an extension, and it is also cheaper than building a new house. Moreover, the extension shall reduce overall heat loss and will provide extra protection against frosts and storms because the previous roof was so fragile.

After making the extension, the family will live in a comfortable and warm place where they will burn less coal for heating, releasing less pollutants into the air, and contributing to the efforts against air pollution.

The borrower is a very hardworking individual who wants to see her grandchild as soon as possible.

About Housing Loans
