Mr. Onon, 60 years old, lives with his wife and son in Ulaanbaatar, capital city of Mongolia. His other three children all got married and live separately from their parents. He has been working as a repairman at a hospital for more than eleven years and accumulated a vast amount of experience in fixing pipes. His wife has retired from work and gets a state pension.

The house they live in has deteriorated over the years and it needs some serious repair. So he is requesting a loan of 3,000,000 MNT to purchase building and insulation materials such as bricks, cement, fiberglass and foam. Using those materials, he and his son can repair and insulate their old house making it far more comfortable and a warm place. The renovated house will enable the family to burn less coal, release fewer pollutants and contribute to the efforts against air pollution. The borrower is very hardworking individual who believes hard work always pays back.

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.
