Update on Alexander

Alexander used his last Kiva loan to build a large greenhouse on a newly-acquired plot of land. This year, his income increased somewhat. He was able to earn 85,000 hryvnia for his family.

However, a new expense has appeared: Alexander's wife was unexpectedly injured when her shoulder muscle ruptured. She has had several operations and is now going through rehabilitation.

Alexander is requesting additional financial assistance, this time in the amount of 23,000 hryvnia, to install heating in his greenhouses. Specifically, he plans to use 16,000 hryvnia to acquire a furnace, and 7,000 hryvnia for hoses and heating pipes. Once the greenhouses are successfully heated, Alexander will be able to start selling his early-season vegetables at higher prices.

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.
