Update on Mohamad

Mohamad is a 26-year-old single man and has been the owner of an internet cafe for three years with four years of experience in this field.

Most of Mohamad's clients are villagers. They enjoy spending their time in his shop since he is almost the same age and holds competitions on a certain game which increases enthusiasm among them. Small children also come to play games suitable for their age, which he recommends to them.

Because such a business recommends a lot of new releases, Mohamad is requesting a YOUTH LOAN from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to buy a new PlayStation, an LCD screen and a power generator to make sure that electricity is available all the time for his customers' benefit.

Mohamad hopes to continue expanding his business in the future by establishing several departments, each one targeting a certain age and needs, and he is doing just that, but gradually through Al Majmoua loans. Note that this is Mohamad's second loan from Al Majmoua, and through his previous loan, he bought a PlayStation, new game releases, computers and UPS necessary to back up information when the power cuts off suddenly.

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.
