Update on ArmenArmen is 39 years-old and he lives in Ijevan city. Armen is married and has three children: two school aged daughters and a three year-old son.
His wife stays at home and takes care of their children, while Armen runs a fruit and vegetable shop. With his business income Armen was able to buy a van and now he delivers fruits and vegetables from Yerevan, different villages of Armenia and even from Georgia. He sells his merchandise from his van or from tables and boxes on the street.
Thanks to his business income he meets his family’s needs and has bought necessary furniture for their house. Now Armen is making an emphasis on potatoes and onion trading as his regular customers lay in a stock of these vegetables in winter. Armen is asking for a loan of 350,000 Armenian drams to buy a large lot of oranges, tangerines and lemons to resell before New Year’s holidays.
This is Armen’s second loan both from Kiva and Nor Horizon.

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.
