Update on AlbertThis is already Albert’s second loan with Kiva lenders and he is sure that it will be as productive as the first one. The village Dddmashen, where he and his family continue to live, is in Gegharkunik region. For several years, Albert used to live and work in Russian Federation, but after coming back and getting married, he continues to live in his beloved and sunny village. He lives with his retired mother and his wife, who is teacher of physics (but at this moment she does not work and takes care of their two little children). For three years, Albert has worked at the Sevan bread factory as a baker, but farming and agriculture remain the main source of income for his family. He owns a plot of land, five bulls, and thirty sheep. He also cultivates tomatoes, cucumbers and greens for his family's use.

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.
