Update on Nyamawi

Nyamawi is still selling green groceries in Mombasa, and he says that his business improved after the boost from the previous loan to add more stock. He informs us that his family is doing well and that he is happy with the ways things are.

He is currently requesting another loan after he repaid the previous one well. He plans to use this money to add more stock of greens and fruits for his grocery shop.

He will use the anticipated profit to open a new business, which he was not able to do with the precious loan, and to build his own permanent home so that his family can have a happy life.

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.
