Update on LarisaLarisa runs her farm with the help of her son and her mother. They live in a village and have a large plot of land. Over the last 10 years, they built three large greenhouses, and they have two others for seedlings. Last year they installed a heating system. Larisa reports that this was a big improvement. She says, "we work as hard as before, but our income is much bigger!" It was difficult for her to raise her son alone. They never had enough money, but now she is joyful because they now have some security and success, and with her son now grown, she has someone on whom she can rely.
The loans really help Larisa. She was fearful when she took out the first one, but with time she has come to understand that without the loan she wouldn't have been able to get to where she is today. Larisa is requesting a loan of 25,000 hryvni (UAH). She wants to build an additional greenhouse to be able to grow more tomatoes. Since they still have undeveloped land where it will be possible to build two more greenhouses, Larisa looks forward to working together again in the future.

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.
