Update on Martha Rosa

Martha lives in the Nindirí municipality with her husband and children. She is a pineapple grower on a small scale.

The greatest concern that has arisen was her husband's illness, as he was hospitalized for two months, and the crop was left on its own, without clearing, or fertilizing, or being looked after, which caused a large part of the production to be lost.

Now she wants to renew the crop and move forward; but her financial situation does not allow her to do so. So she is very happy about the support that Afodenic is providing her through the loan.

With the money granted her, she is going to buy urea, pineapple plants, exfoliants, herbicides, and other products to protect her crop.

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.
