Update on Lesya

Winter was a hard time for Lesya's business. It was very cold and few people came to the market. Spring saw an improvement and in summer things went back to normal. Since winter resulted in weak sales, Lesya's business requires an injection of capital so that her inventory contains items which the customers want to buy. This small loan (currently Lesya is requesting 10,000 griven) will help her purchase the necessary items - summer shorts and shoes. She hopes to be able to earn additional profits from this venture which she wants to use to help repair her son's apartment.

Зимой было трудное время для Леси в плане торговли. Было очень холодно и торговля была вялой. Весной дела улучшились, а к лету дело пошло очень хорошо. Поэтому нужно дополнительное вливание капитала, чтобы увеличить оборот и не упустить своего покупателя. Небольшой кредит (на этот раз Леся просит 10,000 гривен) поможет докупить необходимый товар – летние шорты и тапочки. Она надеется получить дополнительную прибыль и продолжить благоустраивать квартиру для сына.

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.
