Update on Yuriy

Yuriy is very hardworking. He works not only in his own backyard but also as a wage laborer - as the foreman of a group that repairs roads. "In agriculture, difficulties occur from time to time, plants die off," says Yuriy, "but we successfully battle these problems."

Yuriy used his last KIVA loan for greenhouse repair and heating system installation. In order to heat up the greenhouses, he needs to buy more coal as the Spring could be cold. Yuriy also decided to build another greenhouse so that his land would not be vacant. A new loan from KIVA would help realize this plan. Yuriy is requesting that you lend him 25,000 hryvnia.

Юрий очень трудолюбивый, он работает не только у себя на огороде, но и на наемной работе- бригадиром группы по ремонту дорог. « В сельском хозяйстве бывают и трудности, болеют растения»- говорит Юрий, «но мы успешно с этим боремся».

Прошлый КИВА кредит Юрий использовал для ремонта теплицы и установки отопления. Для того, чтобы отапливать теплицы нужно закупить угля побольше, так как весна может быть холодная, а также Юрий решил построить еще одну теплицу, чтобы земля не пустовала. Осуществить этот план поможет новый кредит от КИВЫ. Юрий просит предоставить ему 25,000 гривен.

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.
