Munkhtsetseg is 41 years old and lives with her husband and two daughters in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. The family resides in old house on plot of land. She and her husband have been selling beef to local people by renting a stall at the outdoor market. Her two daughters both go to high school. The house they live in has been deteriorating for years so she decided to renovate and build an extension to her house. For this project, she is requesting a loan of 5000000 MNT to purchase building and insulation materials such as bricks, cement, planks and fiberglass as well as vacuum insulated windows and hardwood flooring. Using those materials, she and her husband will renovate and build an extension to their house before winter. The renovated house will enable the family to burn less coal for heating thus releasing less pollutants into atmosphere. The borrower is a very hard-working 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.
