Update on Juana

Juana is 49 years old and she and her husband have their own home and live there along with their two children. The house is located in the rural settlement of “Sialupe-Humantanga,” which is part of the Lambayaque district, located 15 minutes from the city of Chiclayo. Most of the residents in her settlement raise and sell animals.

Juana’s principle activity is the raising and selling of livestock, such as sheep, goats, and coral birds in large numbers. She sells them in the local markets where she has steady customers and who also sell things in the same markets.

She also generates income by selling corn chicha (a fermented drink of the Incas), and she’s been doing this for five years.

Juana is requesting a loan of 2,000 PEN through Edpyme Alternativa, to buy balanced feed to better promote the growth of her livestock and be able to offer them at better prices. In this way she can increase her income, allowing her to better meet her financial obligations, and improve her quality of life.

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.
