Update on Ankhbaatar

Mr. Ankhbaatar, 41, operates a passenger transportation business in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. For 2 years he has been running his business and he has had some regular customers. Currently he lives with his family in the old house which is in the ger district, an area of the city with no running water, minimal roads and spotty electricity in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. The roof of his house has been bad and damaged for a long time. He made repairs many times, but unfortunately it is broken again. In winter, there is too much heat loss through the bad roof. He uses a coal-fired furnace to warm his house. However, that is one of the main reasons for air pollution in Mongolian cities and all around the world. So he decided to replace his roof. It will cost about 3,000,000MNT approximately, in the market. The loan he is taking will be dedicated to repair his house roof.

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.

Uniquely, it offers solar panel loans to nomadic herders, most of whom live without electricity.

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.

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.
