Update on OtgonbaatarMr. Otgonbaatar, 33 years old, lives with his wife and two sons in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. He has been transporting goods between districts since 2011. His wife is a cook and works at a restaurant. Their sons go to school.
He is requesting a loan of $2,700 USD to buy four tires for his truck. Due to the mining boom in Mongolia, lots of transportation is ongoing, so he travels many times between districts and depreciates his truck's tires. In order to effectively transport goods, he needs high quality tires, as this business is his family's main income. The borrower is a very hardworking individual who strives for a better future.

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.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.
