Update on Irina

Irina's parents left her a house in their will and taught her to work on the land. Irina has been involved in growing vegetables independently for over 10 years already. This is the most profitable business in the village. She has 4 greenhouses on the land and plans to build two more. Irina hoped to use the autumn harvest to purchase everything necessary for the new season, but weather conditions prevented her from doing this. Just when the wide sales of cucumber began, everything froze, and this is why they did not earn a lot. Irina knows where to come for help since she requested a loan last year. The time has come to sow and this is why she really needs additional means. Irina is grateful for the provided help and hopes for a future partnership.

Родители Ирины оставили ей в наследство дом, учили трудиться на земле. Выращиванием овощей Ирина занимается самостоятельно уже более 10 лет. В селе это самый прибыльный бизнес. На участке есть 4 теплицы, в дальнейшем Ирина планирует построить еще две. Ирина надеялась с осеннего урожая приобрести всё необходимое для нового сезона, но погодные условия помешали ей это сделать. Только началась массовая торговля огурцами и всё померзло, поэтому заработали не много.

Ирина знает, куда можно обратиться за помощью, в прошлом году она обращалась за кредитом. Сейчас уже пришло время сеять, поэтому очень нужны дополнительные средства. Ирина благодарит, за оказанную помощь и надеется на дальнейшее сортрудничество.

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.
