Battsengel is 38 years old and lives with his wife and two children in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. For the past 13 years, he has been transporting goods among districts. In the winter, Battsengel purchases and brings coal from the mine to the city to sell at a reasonable price. When the supply of coal decreases, he provides a taxi service to local people. The house his family lives in has deteriorated over the years and it currently needs some serious repair.

Battsengel is requesting a 5,000,000 MNT loan to purchase building and insulation materials such as bricks, cement, vacuum-insulated windows, hardwood floors, and fiberglass. He will use these materials to repair and insulate his house. This will create a more comfortable and warm place where Battsengel and his family will burn less coal for heating. The reduction in coal burning will mean less air pollution and less emission of smoke.

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.
