Update on Jose Francisco

Jose Francisco is married and his children are no longer minors. To earn a living, he provides corn husking and rice threshing services. He has run this business for nine years, and it is located at his home. He inherited this business from his father who previously owned it. When Jose Francisco reached an age of majority, his father handed it over to him so that it would keep going. He currently uses the rice threshing machine, as it generates more business in the area where he lives.
The aim of the loan is to invest in the roof under which the threshing machine and the husker are located. So, the Kiva program would thus help him to improve the conditions under which he provides these services.

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.
