Update on Jeton

Jeton wants to thank all of the lenders for the loan, which he has used buy a milk cow and to build a new stable in hopes of increasing the dairy production and the earnings from selling dairy products to the locals. The loan has helped him to reduce the family’s cost of living by being able to use the products for personal consumption, as well as increase the family’s monthly income.

Now he is asking for a second loan so that he can install a water system in the stable and purchase guano.

Until now, Jeton has had to bring water inside the stable for his cow, which took a lot of time and was often a difficult and tiring process. By having a water system in the stable, he will be able to save a lot of time and energy and therefore be able to focus on the actual milking and selling of the products, as well as continue to focus on selling the coal in his community for heating.

With the added time he will save, Jeton has been hoping to start planting corn and wheat to sell as well, increasing his income even more.

His goal is to give his children a better education. He wants to thank all of the lenders again.

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.
