Update on Viktor

Viktor lives with his wife and children in the city of Kamenke-Dneprovskaya, which is located in the Zaporozhskaya region of Ukraine. His children are already grown and they help him on the farm. Viktor has a large business, which includes a greenhouse and a breeding complex for pigs. He has been in this line of work for 12 years.

Viktor plans to use his Kiva loan of 20,000 hryvnas to invest in grain for his animals. He was offered a purchase of 10 tons of grain at a good price, which is why he needs this loan. Very active and dedicated, Viktor is always trying to reach his goals. He had a stroke of good luck 12 years ago, when he was able to purchase a greenhouse at a very reasonable price. The greenhouse was on a large plot of land, so he immediately made plans to build a breeding complex. Today, Viktor's dream has come true and his business brings him a good income. This loan will help Viktor raise his new piglets.

Виктор планирует вложить кредит в 20 000 гривен, полученный от КИВА в закупку зерна для животных. Предложили купить 10 тонн зерна по выгодной цене, поэтому понадобился кредит. Виктор очень активный и целеустремленный, старается всегда добиваться поставленных целей. 12 лет назад ему очень повезло, он приобрел тепличное хозяйство за небольшую сумму. Там много земли, поэтому он сразу же запланировал построить животноводческий комплекс. На сегодняшний день эта мечта осуществилась и этот бизнес приносит Виктору хороший доход. Кредит поможет Виктору вырастить недавно родившихся поросят.

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.
