Update on Juan Carlos

Juan doesn't have much produce left to sell to customers in his shop, so is asking for a new loan to invest in buying items such as pasta, soap, snacks, soft drinks, juice, sweets, bread, oil, rice and eggs. This will enable him to stock what his customers ask for in his business.

His previous loan helped him at the time to widen the variety of goods in his business. His customers increased and his profitability improved somewhat. Through this, he was able to pay off his loan and also provide his family with a more dignified way of life.

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.
