Update on Papin

Papin and his family are still engaged in farming. With last loan from Kiva, Papin bought tomato seeds and raised a good harvest on his land. He received a good profit and repaired his barn for his animals. He breeds cows, bulls, sheep and chickens. He is very happy that the income from his farming allows them to meet their family's needs.

Papin decided to enlarge the number of his animals and asks for a loan from Kiva lenders to buy 3 young cows and fodder for his animals. He hopes that it will be as good a deal with Kiva as his last loan.

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.
