Update on Enrique Tomás

The María Monserrate Communal Bank meets every two weeks in the city of Montecristi. It is known for its rich pre-colonial culture and for its handicrafts, which are recognized on a national and international level. The famous Panama hats are from this place.

This is where we meet Enrique, age 56. He is married and has three children; all of them are grown. Two of them still live with him. His wife is a great housewife.

In order to get his family ahead he sells fish. In order to do so every day at daybreak he goes to the beaches in the city of Manta. That is where he buys the best fish from the fishermen who come to this place. He then takes his products all over the city of Montecristi and places that are nearby. He makes his sales in a car that his father lends him so that he can earn a living. He has been in this business for 20 years. This is how he has always put food on the table so that his family does not lack anything.

He is getting another loan because he needs to buy much more fish for the daily sales. His sales are increasing, and therefore his income is as well. With the sales he has improved his financial situation and the well-being of his family. He has been in his communal bank for three years. He likes it because of the help he gets from the bank.

His dream is to buy a car in order to make his sales using his own transportation.

Additional Information

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.
