Update on Alexander

Alexander cultivates vegetables in greenhouses. His previous loan allowed him to prepare his existing greenhouses for the season and to install a heating system. Although last year brought a good harvest, it also came with its share of difficulties. Alexander had planned to purchase some land for which he had paid an advance of money, but the transaction fell through, so his business did not particularly grow. His mother-in-law then gave him her own plot of land with a large greenhouse, which Alexander feels is sufficient for him at the moment.

Last winter, he also lost control of his car while driving in icy conditions, so he crashed into a tree. He had to sell his car. He bought another, second-hand car, which actually turned out to be better than his old one.

Alexander is now requesting a loan to buy plastic sheeting, seeds and fertilizers. At the moment, he has no specific plans for the future. He first wants to produce and sell a good harvest; then he will make plans for the development of his business.

Александр занимается выращиванием овощей в теплицах. Благодяря предыдущему кредиту он подготовил существующие теплицы к сезону и установил отопление. Хотя урожай у Александра был хорошим, прошлый год принес ему несколько трудностей.

В прошлом году Александр планировал приобрести землю, отдал аванс, но сделка не получилось, поэтому особого развития не было. Теща Александра отдала ему свой участок земли, на котором есть большая теплица и ему пока достаточно. Также зимой в прошлом году в гололед Александр не справился с управлением и его машина врезалась в дерево. Пришлось ее продать. Через время приобрел другое авто, не новое, но оно оказалось даже лучше старого.

В этот раз Александр просит предоставить ему кредит на закупку пленки, семян и удобрений. Конкретных планов на будущее пока что нет. Александр хочет вырастить и продать хороший урожай, а уже потом строить планы на развитие.

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.
