Update on Martin

Martin was able to renovate some of his rental houses using his previous loan of 1,000,000 UGX. However, the money was not enough to do all he wanted to do. Because he wanted a payment that would fit into his budget, he has waited until now to request another loan of 1,000,000 UGX to renovate the remaining part of his houses. He wants to make them a comfortable environment during the festive season. He will be able to plaster and work on the plumbing for some of the leaking parts of the house. He is excited and thanks Ugafode for standing with him up to his old age. He is an honest and social person who has made many friends within the organization.

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.
