Update on ErikaSince the receipt and use of the last loan, not much has changed for Erika concerning her business or family. The Kiva loan helped her increase her inventory, and consequently raised her income. This time, Erika needs additional financial assistance, a loan of 15,000 hyrvnia in order to buy spring inventory. She hopes to continue to further increase her income and business.
Previous Loan DetailsErika is seeking a new loan in the amount of 10,000 Ukrainian Hryvnia in order to change and diversify her inventory for the autumn-winter season, specifically by buying women's sweaters, blouses and skirts.

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.
