Update on Ararat

In the fall Ararat proposed buying a good sized piece of land to build greenhouses on. Ararat had noticed the plot a while back, and was very happy to see it offered for sale. However, he didn't have the large sum of money needed for payment. Ararat has again asked for help in order to get a loan for 40,000 hryvnia to buy the additional land. He says thank you for the help, since he would not have been able to pay otherwise and others would have bought the land. Ararat has plans for the future - he wants to build greenhouses on the new land, so he hopes to continue working with Kiva.

Осенью Арарату предложили приобрести хороший большой участок земли под строительство теплиц. Этот участок Арарат приметил уже давно и очень обрадовался, что теперь он продается. Однако нужно было отдать крупную сумму денег, которой у Арарата не было. Арарат в очередной раз обратился за помощью, чтобы взять кредит 40 тыс. грн и приобрести дополнительный участок.

"Спасибо за вашу помощь, самостоятельно я бы не справился и участок купили бы другие люди». У Арарата есть планы на будущее - он хочет построить на новом участке две теплицы, поэтому надеется на дальнейшее сотрудничество с КИВОЙ.

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.
