Mr. Och-Erdene, who is 31 years old, lives with his wife and children in Ulaanbaatar, capital city of Mongolia. He has been transporting goods between cities since 2005 and accumulated a vast amount of experience. His wife is currently unemployed and stays at home, taking care of domestic work.

The house his family lives in has deteriorated, so he is requesting a loan of MNT 3,500,000 to buy building materials, such as bricks, cement, fiberglass, and foam, in order to renovate his old house.

After renovation, his family will live in a comfortable and warm place where less coal is burned and thus less pollutants are released into air.

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.
