Update on Aghabek

Aghabek and his wife live in the village of Tsakhkunk, located in the Gegharkunik region, where they are very experienced in farming and agriculture. Their children are married and live with their families separately.

Despite his age, Aghabek is full of energy, and plans to enlarge his farm, where he breeds cows, sheep, horses and chickens, This will be Aghabek’s fourth loan from Kiva. His previous loans, fully repaid, helped him to buy a truck, calves for his farm, and animal fodder; this time he plans to buy piglets and a cow.

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.
