Update on Francois Herve

This borrower is 36 years old, single, and the father of one 11-year-old child. He started selling phone cards and calls after getting his high school diploma in 2007.

He already benefited from one loan, which enabled him to expand his business. His profits increased greatly, and made a big impact on his buying capacity. He managed to put money away effortlessly, and he takes good care of his son's schooling expenses.

With this second loan, he will continue in the same direction, bolster his stock of cards, and get a subscription plan with another national operator. He's also thinking about getting an Internet connexion and computers with modems, in order to satisfy the desires of his customers.

In the future, he wants to increase his savings to reach his goal of becoming a wholesaler in addition to his current business.

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.
