Update on Nancy

Nancy is 45 years old. She lives with her family in their own home, which does not have basic services. Their home is located in the rural area of Tambogrande District, Piura Department. The people of this area work in agriculture, raising livestock and handicrafts.

For the last few years, Nancy has made her living raising and selling sheep. Her corral is located behind her house. The sheep are suitable and she feeds them animal feed as well as natural grasses so they can achieve an ideal weight to be offered for sale in the different markets of the area. This way, she can earn a good profit and meet her daily, household expenses.

Nancy has requested a loan of 1500 nuevos soles (USD $575) from Edpyme Alternativa to purchase animal feed and to ensure the health of her livestock. With the profits she will earn from both of her businesses (see previous loan description), she will be able to cover the loan payments and have a better quality of life. Nancy is a person who with effort and a lot of determination has learned how to help her family to get ahead so they can meet the goals they have laid out for themselves.

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.
