Update on Delgermaa

Delgermaa, 28, is a Korean translator and she has been working in a translation bureau since 2007. Her husband works as a butcher in the supermarket. They live with their kids in an old house which was built at the end of the socialist era in Mongolia. Since then, it has not had any major repairs or plasterwork inside. In the winter, her house becomes cold and experiences heat loss through some areas. The roof is made of lead and is bad and old, causing heat loss, emissions and water droplets. The walls and the door of her house have also been damaged and become very bad.

Because of this, Delgermaa is planning to replace them all. She will make the wall insulation using foam, sand and cement and install a new wooden door. Then she will replace the roof with a metal board one. Altogether, it will cost about 4,500,000 MNT in the construction materials markets in Mongolia. She totally believes her family can live comfortably and stay warm at home in winter after the repairs. She is requesting a loan to buy the building materials including the metal board roof, the wooden door and the wall insulation materials for her home repair.

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.
