Update on Naranhuu

Naranhuu, age 46, lives with his wife and six children in a "ger" (Mongolian yurt) in Hovd province, Mongolia. He started his meat retailing business in 2000 by renting a counter at market. Over the years he has gained many suppliers and regular customers. His wife helps with his business, their elder child is a college student, and the rest of the children are enrolled in school and kindergarten.

At present, Naranhuu's suppliers are increasing their prices rapidly. For this reason, he needs to travel through rural areas in order to buy a bulk quantity of meat. He is requesting a 3,700,000 MNT loan to this end.

He is a sharp and hard-working man. He reports, "My income is decreasing and I need to act aggressively in order to support my family."

Concurrent and Successive Loans

Our Field Partners often work with borrowers over a series of loans as the borrowers build credit, take out bigger loans, and expand their businesses. In order to make it easier for our Field Partners to post loans for borrowers who have been listed on Kiva before, we allow them to post successive and concurrent loans for their Kiva borrowers. This means that our Field Partners are able to post a borrower's second, third, etc., loan on Kiva without having to re-enter all of the borrower's information.

This borrower has been listed on Kiva before, so you'll see an updated loan description, as well as excerpts of the original descriptions from earlier loans. Most borrowers take out loans consecutively, meaning that they receive a second loan after having repaid the first. However, sometimes our Field Partners give out concurrent loans, allowing borrowers to take out one primary loan and a secondary "add-on" loan along with it. These "add-on" loans are typically smaller than the borrower's primary loan and serve a different purpose. Because Field Partners can now post loans as successive and concurrent loans, you will be able to track borrower progress over time and see the various ways a borrower is working with our Field Partners through funds from Kiva’s lenders.
