Update on Munkhtulga

Mr. Munkhtulga, 41 years old, lives with his wife and daughter in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. His wife works as a decorator at a private business entity. He has been working as a plumbing serviceman for four years at a water management agency. He has borrowed money from our organization several times and paid his debt always on time. He is one of our reliable clients. This time he is requesting a loan of 2,500,000 MNT to build a barn, which will be joined with their main house. The barn he will build has the advantage of reducing heat loss through the house door. Most importantly, the family will burn less coal and this action will certainly contribute to the efforts against air pollution. Especially this year, when winter is becoming harsh and the family uses an electric heater to heat the house. This electric heater they use consumes a considerable amount of electricity so building the barn is his only solution to reducing heat loss through the door. In addition, the cost of purchasing construction materials is cheaper at this time.

About Credit Mongol

Credit Mongol is the largest non-banking financial institution (NBFI) in Mongolia. 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. It prioritizes serving remote, rural populations that have typically lacked access to credit and other financial services. 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.
