Update on Mher

Mher is still engaged in farming and animal breeding. His last loan from Kiva helped him to increase the number of his cows and pigs. During the last year, Mher has sold a lot of beef, pork, cheese and eggs. He received a good profit and enlarged his agricultural business. Part of this profit he used to buy special tools for milking the cows, which is shown in his profile photo. It helps him milk cows faster and more effectively. With another part of his profit, Mher paid off his Kiva loan ahead of schedule.

Mher’s wife and mother grow wheat, oats, grapes, fruits and vegetables on their plot of land. They work hard day and night to overcome some economical difficulties in their life.

Apart from agriculture, Mher has found a new job in Ijevan city where he works in a construction company as a worker. Mher accumulates his salary from his construction occupation in order to build a new barn for his animals. This is his big dream and as he confessed, he will do his best to reach that dream as soon as possible.

Mher asks for his second loan from Kiva lenders to buy eight young piglets (farrows), fodder for his animals and to organize seeding in his plot of land.

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.
