Kalerwe Tulla Tda- Godfrey Group
Update on Kalerwe Tulla Tda- Godfrey GroupFor many years, Godfrey had been driving employed by Yasin, the owner of the taxi that he was driving previously. But with the help of Kiva lenders through UGAFODE and his group, Godfrey is now a proud owner of a taxi that he bought last year. He has, however, been in the process of repaying the loan so did not save enough money to pay the tuition for his children.
Godfrey therefore needs a loan to pay school fees for his son, who has just joined secondary school. Godfrey will be very glad if his request is put into consideration because he really believes that educating his son is the best gift a parent can offer to a child. He is grateful to the Kiva lenders for lending to the previous loan.
Previous Loan DetailsGodfrey is a 47 year-old taxi driver and a member of Kalerwe Tulla TDA. He is a father of three, all of whom attend school. Godfrey started this business in 1998 when he recognized that people in the city outskirts did not have proper means of transport to and from the city center.

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.
This is a Group Loan
In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.
Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.

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.
