Update on Marisol

Marisol is 47 years old. She is a single mother and lives with her son who is financially independent. They live in her parents' home. Her parents are retired and receive a monthly pension from the State. Their home is located in the Santa Cruz squatter settlement, in Tambogrande district, in Piura province.

Marisol has a small grocery store where she sells basic household products such as rice, sugar, meat, etc. She has received support from her parents who gave her a space in which to set up her business. She has been working in this business for five years. She also receives help from her only son who supports her financially.

Marisol would like to buy beer to sell at weekends (Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays). Her neighbors ask her for this product but, owing to a lack of capital, she has not been able to make the investment. This is why she is requesting a loan for 3,000 soles from Edpyme Alternativa.

Marisol is well known by our institution as she has received previous loans and made her repayments on time.

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.
