Update on Sarantsetseg

Sarantsetseg is a 34-year-old woman who lives with her mother and three younger brothers in an outer ger district without basic infrastructure, near Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Her brothers attend local universities and the high school.

She has supported her family for the past six years by operating a beauty salon at the largest outdoor market, and she has 3 employees. Sarantsetseg usually offers tattoos, manicures and massages. She takes special care of her employees’ families; therefore, her workers like her and their work.

Sarantsetseg’s aim is to take care to her brothers' studies by creating a comfortable environment for their studies. We live in a new technology era, so her brothers need advanced technology notebooks. Therefore she is requesting a 1,200,000 MNT loan to purchase a new laptop for her brothers, which is especially useful for their future professions.

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.
