Update on Félicité

This customer is 39 years old, married and mother to three children, two of whom are at secondary school and one at "lycée". In 2000 she began to sell chickens for boiling on a stall in the market in order to cover her expenses, and after several years she used her profits to open a shop selling meat, fish and groceries. In 2010 she got her first loan from Hope and with the various loans she has received her business has undergone a real change, her sales have increased, her capital developed significantly and she manages without any difficulty to repay her loans and save a considerable amount.

On receipt of her new loan she is going to boost her stock with cartons of chickens for boiling, chicken thighs, sausage and meat, such as oxtail, hindquarters and forequarters, as well as several cartons of sole, canned tomatoes and cartons of mixed diced vegetables.

She intends to open a cold storage room and as a good mother she looks after her family well and now works together with her husband.

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.
