Update on Alexander

Alexander used his previous loan for the purchase of plastic, seeds and fertilizers. He now wants to use a Kiva loan in the sum of 8 000 hryvnia to develop his agricultural business. He will invest the received funds into installing heating in his greenhouses, for which he will need to buy pipes and coal. Thanks to the profit received from using the previous loan, Alexander and his family were able to purchase a big refrigerator used to store poultry and meat, and also bought a new television for the family. Besides farming, Alexander is involved in raising broilers and pigs. He acquires 100 chickens every three months, raises and sells them at a market. Thanks to this business, the entire family lives well in the winter.

Александр использовал предыдущий кредит для закупки пленки, семян и удобрений.
Теперь он хочет использовать кредит КИВА в 8 000 гривен на развитие сельского хозяйства. Он вложит полученные средства в устройство отопления в теплицы: нужно закупить трубы и уголь.
За счет прибыли, полученной от использования предыдущего кредита Александр и его семья смогли приобрести большой холодильник для хранения птицы и мяса, а также купили новый телевизор для семьи.
Александр кроме огорода занимается выращиванием кур-бройлеров и свиней. Каждые три месяца он берет 100 кур, выращивает и продает на рынке. За счет этого, в основном, вся семья и живет зимой.

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.
