Update on Pedro AgustinDon Pedro is 37 years old and originally from Estelí. He is the father of three children, and works as a farmer and businessman. He has 15 years of experience in growing and selling vegetables.
This is his second loan with Kiva, as he had great success with the first loan which he used for growing onions. Thanks to his good sales, he was able to buy a truck that he uses to transport his products.
He is requesting the second loan to purchase supplies, fertilizers, and manure, and to pay for labor for growing onions. He also hopes that his produce will be of excellent quality and will result in good yields like his first planting.
At this stage, his children are helping him with the farming and are learning to deal with the business side of things. His primary goal is to give them a good education and raise the living standard of 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.
