Mrs. Munkhtsetseg, 27 years old, lives with her husband, son and parents in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. They all live in a small wooden house on a plot of land. She has been working as a cashier at a supermarket for two years.

Recently, she and her husband began building a house next to their old house. But due to lack of finances, she can't afford to buy the necessary building materials such as bricks, cement, shingles, windows, doors and hardwood floors. If she finishes building her house before winter, her parents and her family can live in a comfortable and warm place respectively. Because all of them live in a small house, they are required to burn lots of coal for heating and release pollutants greatly, which has an adverse effect on the environment. Living in separate houses will create a comfortable and warm place. The borrower is a very hardworking individual who strives for a better future.

About Credit Mongol

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.

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.
