Update on Vladimir

Vladimir regularly uses the KIVA loans as this is a handy way to supplement his businesses' cash flow. Currently he needs to purchase a batch of down lined and other insulated winter jackets as well as winter sneakers.

Vladimir's last credit has helped him to expand his store's inventory and attract new clients, resulting in higher profits. Vladimir loves gardening so he has spent some of the earnings to purchase new trees and bushes to plant in front of his house.

In 2003 Vladimir purchased a store where he is selling tobacco for water pipes and pipes, as well as cigars, cigarettes and expensive wines and liquors. After a year he has changed the focus of the store to sell sport clothes instead.

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.
