Update on Wilson

Wilson is 44 years old and has three children, ages 15, 11, and 2. He runs a business renting amplification services. He works on the weekends or when he has a contract. This is the main source of income for he and his family. His children are still in school. His wife also helps with the household expenses with small sales of specific seasonal products. The loan will be used to purchase sound equipment and accessories, thus allowing him to improve his income and consolidate his business, since he has a lot of work in these dates. Wilson is young and hard-working with a great desire to succeed. He wants to offer his children a better future. This job is very tiring since he rents his services to specific social events such as baptisms, weddings, graduations, and many of these events end in the early morning. Wilson is used to staying up very late on many occassions, since this is his job and he has to continue working hard. He feels grateful for the opportunity that the organization is offering him to improve his business each day.

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.
