Update on Eddy

Eddy is a 22-year-old engaged man who has been working as an electrician since 2009.
He is well known in the region for his special talent and the high quality of work he provides, in addition to his quick responses when asked for a certain service.
He is applying for a youth loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to buy newly released tools to help with his business development. He will invest part of the loan, along with a small saved amount, to start building his dream house.

This is Eddy's third loan cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower and he has a good standing repayment history. His previous loan helped him greatly in paying for his engagement expenses and in allowing him to save a small amount of cash from his business income to start building his dream home.

He is willing to keep on improving his business and to open a special electrician services company in the future.

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.
