Update on Ganbaatar

Mr. Ganbaatar, 24 years old, lives with his wife and daughter in Darkhan, the second largest city in Mongolia. The family resides in their own house on a plot of land.

He and his wife graduated from their respective colleges in 2009. He immediately began working as a sentry until employed as a plumber at a thermal power station. Even though his wife specialized in construction decoration, she now works as an assistant chef at a restaurant.

The house they live in has not been completed fully. Exterior layering work remains and the house floor needs improvement, so he is requesting a loan of 2,500,000 MNT to purchase building materials such as bricks, cements and planks. Using these materials, he can puddle exterior walls with bricks and cements as well as make a wooden floor. As a result, heat loss through walls will decrease thus enabling the family to burn less coal and therefore emit less smoke and contribute to the efforts against air pollution. The borrower is a very hardworking individual who strives for a better future.

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.

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.
