Update on Jaime

Before doing his last Kiva loan, Jaime did not have a well-stocked store. Today he has managed to add this business to his customer base, as he now buys groceries and food in quantities that are suitable for his options. He is currently applying for a Kiva loan, with which he will buy food, supplies and drinks. With this investment he will be able to strengthen his working capital and his store will be much more pleasantly stocked for his customers, as Jaime's business is known for its good customer service, fair prices and good stock. Jaime says to his lenders: "Thank you very much; I've been able to develop both business at the same time and to increase my family's earnings."

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.
