Update on Ysabel

Ysabel, 56, is married and has a son in her care. She lives with her family in Platillos hamlet, a rural zone in the agricultural Tambogrande District which has a tropical climate good for fruit production like mangoes and lemons. The zone is located in Piura Region five hours from the city of Chiclayo, Lambayeque Region’s capital.

She raises cattle which produce fresh milk to sell every day; she also raises sheep, pigs and turkeys which when they reach ideal size and weight are sold at the local market. Her husband’s a farmer; he has his own parcel of land where he grows mangoes and cotton.

Ysabel wants to buy nutritionally balanced feed for her animals so that she can sell them at a better price in the local market and also increase her cows’ milk production. This investment will allow her to continue growing in her business and thus improve her quality of life.

To reach her objective she’s asked Edpyme Alternativa for a 2000 new sol loan. She’s had Edpyme Alternativa loans in the past and she’s proven to be quite a responsible, punctual client with her payments.

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.
