Update on Hawa

This is 44-year-old Hawa. She is married and has 2 children, ages 16 and 21 years. Hawa has 2 additional dependents who live with her for assistance in schooling.

In 2002, Hawa established her fish business. She began her business because she wanted to assist her family. Working 7 days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about 900,000 SLL every month from this business.

She would like a loan in the amount of 5,000,000 SLL. Hawa requires a loan in order to buy more cartons of fish to sell and get more profit. She will use some of the money on transportation.

Hawa planned to educate her children to university level and to construct a mini-cool room in her village. She was successful in educating her children and she is still planning to build a mini-cool room in the future through the profit that she makes. She thanks you for your support.

About the Association or Rural Development

The Association for Rural Development (ARD) is one of the leading microfinance institutions in Sierra Leone. Established in 1989, ARD has offered individual and group loans to support small-scale businesses across the country for two decades. You can learn more about ARD on its partner profile page, support the organization and its staff by joining the ARD lending team, or lend to another one of its borrowers currently raising funds on Kiva.

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.
