Update on Mahdi

Mahdi is a 19-year-old single man from Ain. He has been working at raising livestock for six years. His family made him start working early because they needed extra money for living expenses.

As was mentioned in the previous loan request, Mahdi didn't finish his education and he really feels sad for not doing so. He had a dream to make come true but he knows all he's got are his loyal friends. He believes that he must do his best to keep everything suitable and comforting for them.

Mahdi works hard at raising his livestock in clean and healthy surroundings to make sure that they will provide him with the best quality of milk to be sold. He sells his goats' milk and meat depending on customers' requests. He is requesting a youth loan from Al Majmoua, in order to expand the barn for his herd and to keep their living place healthy and updated with the best equipment necessary for the winter season. He hopes to increase his herd through future loans to be requested.

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.
