Update on Gerelmaa

Gerlemaa is 39 years old and lives with her husband and two children, ages 10 and 19, in a ger, a traditional Mongolian felt tent, which is located in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, in an outer ger district without basic infrastructure. Her daughter is a student at the state university, and her son attends secondary school.

Gerelmaa supports her family by operating two clothing retail stalls at the largest outdoor market in Mongolia, with the help of her spouse. She started her business in 2000, specializing in the sale of women's clothes. Today her working capital is three million Mongolian tugriks (MNT).

She worked very hard the last few years, and she bought a small land plot and a car through the profit from her business. Consequently, she needs to increase her working capital and import more clothes to sell. So Gerelmaa is requesting a two-million-MNT loan to import more clothes from Ereen, a border city between Mongolia and China. With her business income, she is planning to pay her daughter's tuition fee.

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.
