Update on Jean Aime

Having completed his university program, the 31-year-old client runs a grocery stand on campus to make ends meet month to month since he only receives his student funding in very small portions at a time.

He sells canned food, sugar, boxes of milk, and other bare essentials so that the students on campus don't have to go far. Having already received several loans from Hope, his revenues have considerably increased, the conditions of his social life have changed, and he has enlarged his stand.

He is currently saving up to open a store. Even if he finds a job someday, he will never be able to abandon his business. He is currently supporting his brothers and sisters who are still in school.

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.
