Update on Lesya

Lesya is married and she and her husband Yevgenij have 2 sons.

Lesya has been selling women's clothing at her hometown marketplace for the last 5 years. Lesya understands the tastes of her customers and, despite her relatively short period of business experience, she has managed to earn enough to purchase a vehicle. In addition to selling clothes, Lesya sells vegetables and seeds, a business for which she previously received a Kiva loan.

Lesya is now seeking a loan in the amount of 10,000 Ukrainian Hrvina to purchase seasonal clothing for resale. This loan will help her to increase her profit, thereby improving the living standards of her family.

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.
