Update on Ngo NyehegLeticia is a young 29-year-old woman, married and a mother. She has been a merchant in the pastry business for the past five years.
Thanks to her warm welcome, the good quality of the cakes she offers, and especially their prices, she has acquired a considerable customer base, which becomes more and more demanding. Her low sales volume no longer allows her to satisfy their various requests.
And so this loan will enable her to purchase a sack of flour and other ingredients so she can diversify and increase the number of cakes. This will increase her sales and thus her profit margin.
She will save part of the profits to invest in her business, and the rest will help her to support her family.

More information about this loan
This loan is part of ACEP Cameroun's new loan program targeting poor clients who require smaller loans thant ACEP normally disburses. The smaller loan size allows clients with micro-enterprises to borrow and repay the funds they need to grow. By supporting this loan, you are expanding financial access to entrepreneurs with very little starting capital, including many who have never taken out a loan.
About ACEP CamerounAgence de Crédit pour l’Entreprise Privée (ACEP) is Kiva's second Field Partner in Cameroon. Founded in 1999, ACEP has developed a strong lending methodology to serve entrepreneurs in Cameroon's urban centers such as Douala and Yaounde.
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.

Photo from previous loan
Kiva allows our Field Partners to re-use the same photo for individual borrowers that have been posted on Kiva's website once before in a 24 month period, and we allow them to re-use group photos for up to 24 months, provided that 80% of the current group's membership is represented.
Taking, collecting, and uploading photos of borrowers is one of the most challenging elements of using Kiva for our Field Partners. In order to make Kiva easier for Field Partners to use, we have allowed them to post successive and concurrent loans without taking a new photo of the borrower if the criteria above are met.
