Update on Alejandro

Alejandro, age 58, is the father of a family. He has two adult children and lives in his home together with his wife in a rural village whose residents typically work in agriculture, and cattle raising specifically. The village named "Huaca Blanca" belongs to the Tambogrande district, which is a part of the Piura province. His village currently only has electricity.

Since he was small, Alejandro has worked raising animals like cows and sheep among others, a task that he still carries out. He hasn't neglected his customers generated previously. Additionally, together with his wife and with the help of his children, they have implemented a small business selling chicha de jora (a native corn-based beverage), beer and food within their own home. At this time, it is going very well for them, given that they already have their own customers in that area.

Alejandro wants to purchase balanced food that he can feed to his animals and sell them at a better price, promoting them in the local markets as well as the markets of other villages where he is also already known for his many years in the business. At the same time, he wants to purchase some of the equipment necessary to continue implementing his second business. For this reason, Alejandro is requesting a loan in Edpyme Alternativa for the amount of 1800 Nuevos Soles, which will be invested in the aforementioned ways.

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.
