Update on Alexander

Earlier this year, Alexander bought an automobile that he can use to transport his produce to the market. Previously, he and his wife carried their vegetables in a wheelbarrow, which was difficult, or sold them at lower prices. Now, they can take their harvest to the market or even to a nearby large city and sell it at a better price, thereby making additional profits.

This new loan is needed to purchase seeds and plastic covering for the greenhouses. Alexander has already installed a heating system in one greenhouse, which will allow him to preserve his whole harvest during spring frosts, and will increase his profits.

В этом году Александр приобрел автомобиль, на котором он может вывозить продукцию на рынок. Раньше вместе с женой они возили овощи на тачке, что было тяжело, или сдавали по низкой цене. Теперь, могут вывезти на рынок или даже в ближайший большой город и продавать свою продукцию по хорошей цене, получая дополнительную прибыль.

Кредит нужен для закупки семян и пленки для теплиц. Алесандр уже сделал отопление в теплице, что позволит сохранить весь урожай весной во время заморозков, а значит получить дополнительную прибыль.

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.
