Update on Vadim

Vadim continues his greenhouse farming in the village of Privetnoye. He owns 1.1 hectares of land where he cultivates early tomatoes, squash, peppers and cabbage. After transplanting seedlings from the greenhouses into an open field, Vadim uses the greenhouses to grow early cabbage, which he harvests some time in May.

He needs the sum of 12,000 hryvnia in order to purchase seeds, plastic film and fertilizers, and rebuild a greenhouse. Vadim enjoys working for himself, taking care of the land and growing vegetables. He hopes to continue in his favourite occupation, expanding his greenhouse farm as circumstances permit.

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.
