Update on Sylvain

This client is forty two years old and single, without children. Having finished his university studies and not finding any work, he created a small business based on the retail sale of food products, including fresh food.

He has benefited from several loan cycles, and has managed a butcher shop with a capacity for sales and effective repayments. With an equally strong request, the fourth loan has permitted him to open a cold storage room. He purchased boxes of fresh food like fish, beef, pork chops and poultry.

He plans to save a lot, and right now he is in the process of accomplishing his objectives little by little. Exemplary in his characteristics as a businessman, he maintains friendly relationships and good cooperation in his community.

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.
