Update on Andrei

Andrei and his family live in Novaya Kahovka. He sells computer equipment, and further provides services like computer maintenance and repair. Andrei has been working in this business for 14 years already. Currently he rents a retail space at a shopping center, where his small store and service center is located. His most popular goods are notebooks, monitors, computer cases and printers.

Andrei has noticed that he needs to fill up with components for personal computers. However his available funds are insufficient to purchase all that he has planned for. Therefore Andrei turned to Kiva for a loan in the amount of 4,000 hryvnia.

Andrei is married and he has two sons. He has to feed his family, and therefore he plans to continue doing business, investing in its gradual development.

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.
