Update on BatMrs. Bat, 56 years old, lives with her husband and granddaughters in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. Her husband transports passengers between Ulaanbaatar and Ulan-Ude, the capital of Buryatia, Russia, for a living. She has retired from work and gets a state pension. Before retirement, she used to work in a boot factory. Using her previous loan, she completed a house extension, thus living comfortably and warmly in 2013. Recently, her house roof deteriorated due to the intense bombardment of snow and rain. So she is requesting a loan of 4,000.000 MNT to buy building and insulation material such as shingles, fiberglass, foam and bricks to repair the roof. As a result, her family will continue to live in a comfortable and warm place. Living in a warm house greatly reduces the consumption of coal, thus contributing to the efforts against air pollution.

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.
