Update on Wence

Wence, 56 years old, began to work at a young age, and he wasn't able to study because his parents didn't have the economic means to offer an education for him. All of Wence's children still live at home with him, as they are quite young, and the older ones are studying in the community’s school.

Wence has worked in agriculture throughout his life, as his father was also in this field, and because he was the only male from the siblings, he had to help his father to cultivate corn. Once he married, he continue to work on his own, for his family. In addition, he performs daily jobs tending cattle, or buying and selling fish. He does these jobs on a daily basis and then sells the products from his own home. During the harvesting season he grows corn in a field of 7,000 sqm.

The loan that he is requesting now will be to buy farm animals (like pigs) and animal feed. Wence wants to support his children’s education as much as possible. He also hopes to be able to build a home in the future, as they currently rent and he wants to build a house for his family.

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.
