Update on Natalya

Natalya has used financial assistance from KIVA several times already. Her last credit helped Natalya expand her inventory and purchase children jackets and windbreakers. Due to the increased profits from the sale of goods she purchased with the loan Natalya was able to continue improving her house and has almost finished renovating which has been her longstanding dream.

This time Natalya would like to take out a loan of 4000 griven so that she can purchase hats for resale. Her experience in retail has taught Natalya that during the switching of the seasons it's important to quickly expand one's winter inventory, since the more one invests in it early the better the profits will be in the end.

Наталья уже несколько раз пользовалась финансовой помощью, предоставленной КИВА. Предыдущий кредит помог Наталье расширить свой ассортимент товара, закупить детские куртки и ветровки. Благодаря прибыли, полученной от реализации товара, приобретенного на сумму, полученную от КИВА в последний раз, Наталья смогла продолжить строительство своего дома и почти закончила в нем ремонт, что давно казалось ей несбыточной мечтой.
В этот раз Наталье необходима сумма в размере 4 000 гривен для того, чтобы закупить зимние головные уборы под реализацию. Работая в сфере рыночной торговли уже несколько лет, Наталья обнаружила, что в этот период смены сезонов очень важно начать наращивать ассортимент зимнего товара, потому что чем больше в него вложишь, тем больше потом можно получить прибыли.

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.
