Update on Julieth

Julieth used her previous loan to make uniforms, casual clothes and sleepwear which she sold to increase her working capital. She is very satisfied because this was thanks to her CrediKiva. Therefore she is about to take out her third CrediKiva loan to strengthen her other business which is cold meats. She will buy in bulk since her customer base has grown and she is constantly receiving more orders. Part of the new loan will be used to buy fabric to make uniforms for an educational organization. Her message to Kiva lenders is the following: "Thank you for the support you are giving to my business. I will continue to pay back the loan on time".

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.
