Update on Purity

Purity is an energetic, hard-working woman with many goals for the future. She is ready to do her very best, as she knows that only in this way will she be able to fulfill her dreams and achieve success. Purity is taking out a new loan to invest it in her existing business. She is thankful for the previous loans she had, as they enabled her to make improvements in her business and her home.

As every good business person does, she wants to see her business grow and also wants to undertake new investments. However, she doesn't have sufficient working capital, and that is why she is applying to Yehu for a loan that will allow her to buy staple grains, bread, flour, instant products, drinks, detergents, etc.

Purity has good payment references and is happy about the help she is getting. She is confident that she will be able to pay off her debt, just like she did with the previous loans, and at the same time she has faith that she will be able to bring financial security to her household.

About Yehu Microfinance Trust

This loan is administered by Yehu Microfinance Trust, which was founded in 1998 as a project of CHOICE Humanitarian Kenya. In July 2007, Yehu became a separate entity from CHOICE and was registered as a trust. Since then, Yehu has expanded to cover over half of Kenya’s 13 coastal districts.

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.
