Update on Andrei

Andrei has already come to Kiva for financial assistance. He installed heat in all his greenhouses, as well as added large planters with the goal of increasing the profits from his garden. Last fall, Andrei lost his crop of cucumbers, and his family lost practically all their income. Because of this, Andrei took out a loan to help his situation again.

At this time, Andrei needs an additional sum of 20,000 UAH to buy coal. With this coal, Andrei will be able to heat all his greenhouses and he hopes to harvest early.
View original language description ↓
Андрей уже один раз обращался к КИВА за финансовой помощью. Он сделал отопление во всех теплицах, поставил большие котлы, вследствие чего увеличился доход с огорода. Когда в прошлом году у Андрея пропали огурцы на втором урожае осенью, его семья практически ничего не заработала и понесла убытки. Поэтому Андрей и обратился за кредитной помощью снова.
В этот раз дополнительные средства в размере 20 000 гривен необходимы Андрею для того, чтобы закупить уголь. Закупив уголь, Андрей сможет отапливать все теплицы и надеется пораньше получить урожай.

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.
