Update on Svetlana

Svetlana used a previous loan from Kiva to remake one of her greenhouses: before that it was a low greenhouse, which was hard work. Her son helps her in her greenhouse business, which is much easier.

Svetlana plans to invest the funds received from Kiva in the amount of 15,000 hrivna to build more greenhouses on the site. She has a free piece of land on which she wants to put another greenhouse. This will give her the opportunity to increase revenue and to plant more tomatoes.

Светлана планирует вложить полученные от КИВА средства в размере 15 000 гривен в постройку дополнительной теплицы на своем участке. У нее есть свободный участок земли, на котором она и хочет поставить еще одну теплицу. Это даст ей возможность увеличить доход и посадить больше помидор.

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.
