Update on Svetlana

Svetlana lives and works in Novaya Kohovka. She sells women's sportswear in the local market, renting her stall from the market's administration, which has enabled many small businesses here that cannot yet afford to buy their own stores. Svetlana has been running her business for 19 years. Currently her main products are T-shirts, sweaters, shorts and sports suits.

With the 31,000 hryvnia from Kiva, Svetlana plans to buy jackets, vests, pants, and warm outfits for the coming autumn and winter seasons. Having sufficient retail experience, quality merchandise and competitive prices, as well as an interest in the field, Svetlana plans to continue her business into the future, and grow the business to provide for her family.

About HOPE Ukraine

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.
