Update on Suren

Suren is 49 years old. He lives in Ddmashen village, which is in the Gegharkunik region. His large family sends their greetings to Kiva and its field partner Nor Horizon and thanks for their first Kiva loan which was rather profitable (they bought young calves) and of great help. Suren perfectly manages his farming and agricultural activities. On his farm Suren raises three cows, four calves, four sheep and twelve chickens. He also continues the cultivation of potatoes and he plans to enlarge it, since he already has a customer who is ready to buy his coming season's harvest.

Suren needs this second loan from Kiva in an amount of 800,000 Armenian drams in order to buy potato seedlings, fertilizer and also animal fodder for his farm cattle.

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.
