Update on Martin

Martin was able to buy clothes to resell during the previous cycle. He is grateful to the lenders for his loan through Ugafode. It is now approaching Christmas, and people are buying clothes for the festive season. He has therefore taken a loan of 1,500,000 UGX to buy more inventory before the prices go up. He will sell the inventory to his customers who are preparing for festivities and parties. He is confident he will make a big profit. He thanks Ugafode for the trust they have developed in him by giving him more. He is hard-working and honest.

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.
