Update on Armen

Following several years of hard and devoted work, he now is working in a hydro-electrical station. Simultaneously, he is engaged in farming. On his farm he has cows, piglets, and chickens, and he takes care of them perfectly.

Armen has decided to get a decent income with the coming of the New Year. This is the reason for requesting a second loan with Kiva. He asks for a loan of 1,100,000 Armenian drams in order to buy a quantity of animal fodder for his piglets. He plans to feed them for half a month and then sell them. Armenian people make their main New Year’s dish from pork, so that is why the demand for pork is so great during that period.

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.
