Update on Liana

Liana was born and lives in the city of Kapan of the Siyunik district. She studied to become an economist at the Kapan construction college. Liana got married at an early age. Liana is now 37 years old and a widow; her husband died in a car accident. Liana has a son, who lives with her along with her parents. Liana's mother is ill, and father teaches at the Kapan construction college. Because Liana is raising her son by herself, she does everything to make sure that he grows up to be a deserving citizen of his country, obtains good education and lives happily and without difficulties. After her husband's death, Liana opened her own business and has been selling food products, clothing and dishware in a leased store in Kapan for almost four years. Once a month, she buys merchandise at wholesale markets in Yerevan and resells it at her store in Kapan. She already has many customers, who prefer to buy clothing, dishware and kitchen accessories from Liana's store. She is very happy that her hard work can support her family, help her father with the household and pay for her ill mother's treatment. Liana worked with Kiva in 2009, and this is her second loan, with which help she wants to purchase a large inventory of spring merchandise from Yerevan and many kitchen accessories and dishware. A large Christian holiday of Easter is coming up, and she hopes to make a good profit from holiday sales.

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.
