Update on Sully

Sully's business has been growing since she added a new specialty to the menu—beef and seafood soup—which has been popular with her customers because it's tasty and nourishing.

She continues working with her husband in the business. In the last few months she has felt ill, while being pregnant with her baby. Sales declined and she was late with her payments, but with the support of her family, things are different now. Her baby is fine and has brought joy to the house.

Today she is happy that her sales are stable, and thanks to a loan through Afodenic, with this new loan, she can buy basic grains, meat, chicken, bones, beef tails, shrimp, crabs, punch, fish, coco-cola, fruits and vegetables in order to continue making her delicious food.

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.
