Update on Baasanjav

Baasanjav, 47, lives with his wife and two children in a ger (a traditional Mongolian yurt) in Hovd province, Mongolia. His wife helps with his business, his elder child is a college student and his younger child is in school. He started his business journey in 2003 selling firewood and coal. Later, he expanded his business by selling dairy products and running a taxi service using his own car. He is a sharp and hardworking man who says, "Now that my daughter is in college, I need to work as hard as I can in order to support her." As the Mongolian holiday season is now approaching, demand for coal and dairy products is increasing and therefore he has requested a loan of 1,000,000 Mongolian tugriks (MNT) to buy fuel at a wholesale price.

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.
