Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is part of Micro Start's higher education program, offering students tuition loans for two-year associates degrees and three-to-five-year bachelor's and graduate-level degrees. Micro Start is partnering with education institutions like the Ecole Superieure de Travaux Publics de Ouagadougou (ESTPO) to identify and provide financing to high-achieving, responsible students who lack the resources to pay for tuition up front. This Kiva loan will be used to provide borrowers with needed goods or services, as opposed to cash or financial credit. These loans have terms ranging from five to ten years and include an upfront fee of 2.5% and an annual interest rate of 5%. They are disbursed at the start of the school year and are repaid monthly with a grace period of two to three years. By supporting this loan, you are helping students with limited options to stay in school, and encouraging Micro Start to roll the program out to more institutions and support even more students.

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.
