Update on Pavel

Pavel has used loans from Kiva several times, all the while investing in development of his greenhouse business. Last year, Pavel's father-in-law was seriously ill. The family spent a lot of money on treatment, but nothing worked and his father-in-law died. Because their money was not enough for the seeds and film for last season, Pavel took another loan from Kiva. With the money invested in his business, he was able to get free and have a good profit.

This time Pavel needs a sum of 20,000 hrivna to buy seeds and film to organize the next greenhouse season. After the death of his father-in-law, his mother-in-law gave Pavel his land with greenhouses. As a result, he decided to expand his farm and with time to put up an extra greenhouse.

Павел уже несколько раз пользовался кредитами от КИВА, все время вкладывая средства в развитие своего тепличного бизнеса. В прошлом году у Павла тяжело заболел тесть. Семье пришлось много средств потратить на лечение, но ничего не помогло – тесть умер. Из-за того, что своих средств не хватало на семена и пленку в прошлом сезоне, Павел взял последний кредит КИВА. С помощью этих денег, вложенных в хозяйство, смог раскрутиться и получить хорошую прибыль.
В этот раз Павлу необходима сумма в размере 20 000 гривен для того, чтобы закупить семена и пленку для организации следующего тепличного сезона. После смерти тестя теща отдала Павлу свой участок земли с теплицами, в результате чего он решил расширить свое хозяйство и со временем поставить дополнительные теплицы.

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.
