Update on Monicah

Monicah used her previous loan amount to buy more stock of chicken feed for her chickens. It was profitable, since the chickens laid more eggs for sale, and she also sold some of the chickens to her customers.

This being Monicah’s third loan, she plans to use the amount to buy more stock of chicken feed for her new stock of chickens. This includes both growers’ mash and layers’ mash. She anticipates generating more profits from the sale of the chickens.

Monicah hopes to expand her chicken business by supplying the chickens and eggs to other markets in the region, and thereby make more income.

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.
