Update on Antonina

This is not the first time Antonina uses Kiva's services. She took her last loan in November of 2011, and used it to expand her business. The winter season was difficult, with adverse weather making work hard, and business was slow. Nevertheless, Antonina was able to make profits and even bought some household appliances.

This time, Antonina is taking a loan of 12 000 hryvnia in order to purchase seasonal women's clothing for sale during summer. Every Ukrainian family tries to find a way to rest and revitalize in the summer, and Antonina's family is no exception. She hopes to use her profits from sales of additional merchandise to pay for her family's vacation at a resort in Kirillovka on the sea of Azov.

Антонина уже не первый раз пользуется услугами КИВА. В последний раз она брала кредит в ноябре 2011 года. Он был использован на развитие бизнеса. Зимний рабочий сезон выдался непростым, погодные условия очень усложняли работу, наблюдался существенный спад торговли. Тем не менее, Антонина смогла получить прибыль и даже приобрела на нее новую бытовую технику.
В этот раз Антонина берет новый кредит в размере 12 000 гривен с целью закупить сезонную женскую одежду для последующей реализации летом. Каждая семья в Украине пытается найти какой-то способ немного оздоровиться и отдохнуть летом. Семья Антонины не исключение. Антонина тоже надеется вложить сумму, полученную от реализации дополнительно приобретенного товара в отдых семьи на базе отдыха в Кирилловке, на Азовском море.

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.
