Update on Purity

Purity used her previous loan to increase her inventory of tea leaves, sugar, and soft drinks for her business. That prior loan enabled her to increase her monthly income from 15,000 KES to 20,000 KES.

She is now seeking a loan in the amount of 80,000 KES, which she intends to use to add more inventory for the shop and to purchase maize for re-sale. She plans to open an M-pesa shop with the anticipated profits generated from the business as a result of the loan. Her dream is to own her own wholesale shop.

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.
