Tabitha is a 27-year-old married woman. She has two children, a 6-year-old and a 13-year-old. She describes herself as a hard-working woman. She operates a retail stall where she sells shoes. She has been involved in this business for four years and employs one staff member. Her business is located in an open, busy market, and her primary customers are local residents.

Her business goal is to be a wholesaler, selling shoes to retailers and customers in the environs within five years. She hopes that in the future, she will cater for her family's financial needs with the profit she will get from the business. This is her second loan with SMEP DTM. Her previous loan was paid successfully.

Additional Information

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.
