Update on Erdenedelger

Mrs. Erdenedelger, 38, runs a second-hand clothes business in an outdoor market of Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia. For seven years she has been selling clothes. In the summertime, she sells t-shirts and bags, and in the winter, she sells jackets, coats, etc. Currently, she lives with her family in a ger, a Mongolian traditional nomadic yurt, in the ger district of Ulaanbaatar. Her family owns an old, small house in addition to their ger, but it was built with very bad walls. In the winter, their house suffers heat loss and emits fuel. So, she wants to repair her home before the winter. First of all, she plans to add insulation to the walls. The loan she is taking out will be dedicated to covering the cost of building materials to repair her house.

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.
