Update on Alexei

Alexei asks for a loan for the purchase of seeds, fertilizer, watering systems and other material for greenhouses.

Thanks to the previous loan, Alexei increased planting, was able to use the land effectively, and received a larger income from the early harvest, because late harvest had a much lower price. He was able to use more modern technologies for farming and planting.

Alexei has long worked with farming, and owns the largest plot of land in the village close to his house. He also has his own sawmill, where he works in his spare time, when there are orders.

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.
