Update on Victoria

Victoria has used Kiva services several times already. Thanks to the timely obtained financial help, her business not only stayed afloat, but gradually developed and grew. She moved to a new retail location at the same market, where she previously worked. Now, her sales have increased more. This time, Victoria requested a loan in the amount of 10,000 hryvnia to purchase puffer jackets for sale during the cold autumn-winter period. Thanks to the fact that she will increase her goods turnover, she would have to travel less for wholesale merchandise purchases, which would also decrease her expenses and wasted time. Victoria is thinking about developing a website and starting to sell her merchandise also through the Internet, which today is becoming more popular in Ukraine.

Виктория уже несколько раз пользовалась услугами КИВА. Благодаря своевременно полученной финансовой помощи ее бизнес не только удержался на плаву, но и постепенно развивался и рос. Она переехала на новое место торговли, на том же рынке, где работала и раньше. Теперь торговля стало более бойкой.
В этот раз Виктория обратилась за кредитом в размере 10 000 гривен для того, чтобы закупить пуховики для продажи в холодный осенне-зимний период. Благодаря тому, что она увеличит товарооборот, ей придется меньше ездить в поездки за оптовыми закупками товара, что сократит ее расходы и трату времени. Виктория подумывает о том, чтобы разработать свой сайт и начать торговать своим товаром также и через интернет, что сегодня становится все более популярным и в Украине.

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.
