Update on RomanThe last loan Roman received from Kiva was used to purchase plastic greenhouse covering and fertilizers. Roman was also able to buy rebar for constructing his greenhouses, as well as some household appliances for his family.
Since his last Kiva loan, Roman has also incurred some unexpected expenses when his wife underwent surgery in the spring.
Presently, Roman needs additional funding in the amount of 7000 hryvnia to purchase fertilizers and pay salaries to his employees who work in the greenhouses. Thanks to the fact that his plants will have everything they need for growth, Roman will collect a good harvest and will be able to start selling his vegetables earlier.
Роману понадобились дополнительные средства в размере 7 000 гривен для покупки удобрений и оплаты рабочим, которые трудятся в его теплицах. За счет того, что растения получат все необходимые удобрения для роста, урожай вырастет хорошим и, значит, Роман сможет начать раньше торговать ранними овощами.

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.

Photo from previous loan
Kiva allows our Field Partners to re-use the same photo for individual borrowers that have been posted on Kiva's website once before in a 24 month period, and we allow them to re-use group photos for up to 24 months, provided that 80% of the current group's membership is represented.
Taking, collecting, and uploading photos of borrowers is one of the most challenging elements of using Kiva for our Field Partners. In order to make Kiva easier for Field Partners to use, we have allowed them to post successive and concurrent loans without taking a new photo of the borrower if the criteria above are met.
