Update on Julia

Julia is asking for a new loan so that she can continue to grow her business. Her previous loan allowed her to buy three hundred kilos of middling (coarsely ground wheat mixed with bran) for her pigs and also concentrate (food pellets) for her cows. This increases her productivity.
That last loan generated more earnings for her and these earnings helped her to care for all of her animals. She did not have to sell any in order to cover her costs. Her economic conditions have improved and she is able to provide a better quality of life for her children by providing them with food and an education.

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.
