Update on Natalya

Natalya decided use a Kiva loan because she really likes the ability to obtain a loan for short period of time, which is convenient for her. Natalya used her previous Kiva loan to purchase ceramic dishware and pots and opened remote sales during the summer period. Recently, Natalya was able to hire a nanny for her youngest child, which is something she could not afford to do before. Natalya is requesting a loan in the sum of 20 000 hryvnia to invest into a wholesale purchase of imported Chinese merchandise (needles, threads and sewing accessories).

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.
