Update on Bernabas

Bernabas is one of several TLM clients funded by Kiva lenders in August 2011 when he received a loan of IDR 3,000,000 to buy more fish to sell. Prior to getting the loan, Bernabas was only able to generate an income of between IDR 250,000 and 400,000 per day, but after securing the loan, he was able to generate a daily income of between IDR 400,000 and 600,000. With the improvement in his business, Barnabas was able to fully repay his loan in July 2012.

Barnabas has a desire to keep improving his business and is therefore requesting a loan of IDR 4,500,000 to buy more stocks of sardines and yellow fin tuna. He would also like to use part of the loan for his home renovation.

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.
