Update on Alexandra

Alexandra works with green house farming. Since her previous loan, her children bought a house nearby and build two greenhouses there. This contributed to increasing the income. Alexandra would like optimize her business processes. Currently she grows seedlings in one of the largest greenhouses. Doing this, she loses time for sowing. Alexandra would like to build a separate greenhouse for seedlings. This will help reduce the sowing time, and will mean receiving the harvest earlier and sell them for a better price.

Alexandra requests a loan in the amount of 30,000 hryvnia to build greenhouses for seedlings, and also to purchase seeds, plastic film and fertilizer. The loan will help her increase the income and thus improve the welfare of the family.

Last year, Alexandra's husband suffered a stroke. He could almost not walk, but now he is improving. However he cannot work in the greenhouse. As it is hard for Alexandra to manage the business without her husband's help, her children help her. Together they hope for his speedy recovery.

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.
