Update on Cristhian Marlo

Cristhian, 26, lives with his wife and son in his own house that only has electricity and is located in the rural part of Tambogrande District that belongs to Piura Department. This zone is noted for farming, livestock raising and crafts making.

Cristhian is a farmer. He has his own fields where he grows corn, an activity he’s been doing for some years now since it’s a product that’s consumed daily by people. Once harvest is in he sells it in various markets in the zone and some outside of it as well. With income acquired he can provide a better quality of life for his son and wife. He also raises small farm animals that provide another source of household income.

Noting that the business is growing he felt it necessary to request a 2000 new sol loan from Edpyme Alternativa to buy fertilizer to improve his land and his crops and to buy nutritionally balanced animal feed. With profits obtained he will be able to repay the loan and meet his family’s daily needs. With work and dedication Cristhian provides the best for his son with the goal in mind of offering him an academic opportunity in the future.

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.
