Update on Lkhagva

Mr. Lkhagva, who is 43 years old, lives with his wife and children in Darkhan, which is the second largest city of Mongolia. The family resides in their own house on a plot of land. Before moving to the house, they resided in a traditional Mongolian ger (portable felt dwelling) on another person's land. His elder daughter studies at the university of technology. His older son has graduated from his vocational course and now works as an electrician in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. His younger daughter goes to high school while his youngest child attends kindergarten. Since 2006, he has begun rendering transportation services to local people using his own mini-van. In 2010, he purchased another mini-van and paid its' full price in January, 2011. In February, 2012 he rented another mini-van and employed one driver. His wife helps him by executing the role of money collector. This time of year, the price of automobiles is usually low compared with other seasons so he is requesting a loan of 6800000 MNT to purchase a car which runs on natural gas. The advantage of a car which runs on natural gas is that it emits less smoke and generates only harmless chemicals to atmosphere. The borrower is a very hardworking individual who is responsible and reliable. Purchasing a natural gas powered automobile is definitely reflective of his responsibility in all aspects.

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.
