Update on Gennadyi

Gennadyi has received several Kiva loans in the past. He was very impressed with the effectiveness of these loans, and therefore decided to ask Kiva lenders for help once again. Gennadyi used his previous Kiva loans to purchase additional bicycle parts and accessories, thanks to which the number of his customers grew. By combining his new profits with previous savings, Gennadyi was able to purchase a Lanos automobile.

Presently, Gennadyi needs a loan of 20 000 hryvnia in order to further expand his assortment of bicycle parts and household goods. This year, two of his sons will begin their post-secondary education. It will be difficult to pay for their studies at the same time, and so Gennadyi needs money now more than ever.

Gennadyi is a very hard-working person. He is ready to work overtime in order to provide for his family and children.

Геннадий уже несколько раз пользовался кредитами КИВА. Он успел убедиться в эффективности этих кредитных услуг и решил снова обратиться за помощью именно к кредиторам КИВА.

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.
