Update on Galina

Galina has a autoparts store in downtown V. Znamenka. She and her husband have been running the business together for many years. They are very open, sociable people. They are respected and well know throughout the region, since they provide agricultural equipment parts to drivers from other towns. With their extensive experience, they know what part to send, so that the buyers will have everything they need. Recently Galina noticed that fewer agricultural parts were being bought, and car parts were in higher demand. In order to not lose customers, they decided to expand their inventory of car parts, using a loan of 21,000 hryvnia. The loan will really help Galina develop her business.

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.
