Update on Clarisse Ursule

This client is 37 years old, married, and the mother of three children. She has already had several loans that enabled her to be autonomous. She is no longer buying on credit. She has her own capital. She buys her boxes of salted fish from West African wholesalers, and sometimes she makes special orders at Pointe Noire.

Currently, the difficulties she encounters involve the rise in [the price of] products and the rough market competition.

With this new loan, she is going to bolster her stock by adding 10 boxes of cod, 10 boxes of sole, 5 boxes of tuna, and some capitaines (a kind of river fish).

With a fighter’s spirit, she wants to start selling fish wholesale to retailers and wholesale to the pubic. She continues to save money and greatly help her family to thrive.

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.
