Update on Natalya

Natalya is a businesswoman from the town of Nikopol. She sells shoes and clothing in a small store. Thanks to the previous Kiva loan Natalya was able to buy seasonal merchandise. The sales were good and she was able to increase her profit.

The rental cost has increased due to the reconstruction taking place at the trade center where Natalya's store is located. Nevertheless the additional profit has helped Natalya cope with this difficulty.

The shoes will be in high demand with the arrival of spring even though Natalya sells not only shoes but clothing too. This is why she wants to take a loan to buy a batch of shoes for the spring. Thanks to the loan Natalya is planning to get an additional profit with the coming of spring.

Наталья - предприниматель из города Никополь. Она торгует обувью и одеждой в небольшом магазинчике. Благодаря предыдущему КИВА кредиту Наталья смогла сделать закупку товара к сезону. Торговля была хорошей и Наталья смогла увеличить свою прибыль.

В связи с тем, что в торговом центре, в котором расположен магазинчик Натальи, проводится реконструкция, возросла арендная плата. Тем не менее дополнительная прибыль помогла Наталье справиться этой трудностью.

Несмотря на то, что Наталья торгует не только обувью, но и одеждой, когда придет весна, то первым делом будут спрашивать обувь. Поэтому Наталья хочет взять кредит, чтобы закупить партию весенней обуви. Благодаря этому она планирует получить дополнительную прибыль с приходом весны.

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.
