Update on Candido Humberto

Cándido is always working, making mattresses, and has been keeping his business going with the help of loans through AFODENIC and using the money to buy supplies. This is why he is requesting another loan through AFRODEC and Kiva. He is very grateful and will use the money to buy four bolts of printed and solid fabric. This small investment will allow him to keep selling so that he can help his two children continue studying. He wants to take advantage of being healthy and will continue supporting them, as the single father he is, until they are on their own and can support themselves. His greatest dream is to expand his workshop so that he can have more merchandise in the market. Cándido is a manager at another company, but his mattress job is more profitable and benefits his family better.

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.
