Update on BatkhuuBatkhuu, 46 years old, lives with his wife and two sons in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. The family resides in a traditional Mongolian ger (portable felt dwelling) next to their own grocery store. His elder son studies at university while his younger son goes to high school. He has a leg disability and uses crutches. Due to his disability, he gets a pension from the state and his wife executes the role of caretaker. In 2012, he rented a counter at an outdoor market and began selling additives such as ketchup, mayonnaise, pepper, garlic, onion and curry. He is requesting a loan of 1500000 MNT to purchase food stuffs in large quantities, so that he and his wife can run their grocery store without worrying about stock shortage. This one family is a perfect example of how a simple loan can change one's life.

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.
