Update on Rosa Indiana

Rosa is a 22 year old woman with a domestic partner and one daughter for whom she is the caregiver. She lives with her partner and her daughter in their own house. The quality of life in the community is that of basic subsistence. The majority of the inhabitants are independent workers who work in the selling and care of small animals and some also work in agriculture. Rosa lives in her own house in the farm area Chica Alta of the Tambogrande district in the department of Piura. She only has basic electricity. It is also worth mentioning that in this farm area approximately 120 families live under these conditions.

Rosa devotes herself to the commercial activity of selling primary necessity products such as: rice, sugar, vegetable stew, eggs, milk, oil, noodles, detergent, sweets, etc. She has a small store installed in her own house, where she attends to her loyal customers. She is also devoted to the raising, fattening, and selling of small animals such as: fowl, pig livestock, goats. These animals are raised in external corrals outside her house. However, she sells them in the local market and/or to wholesale animal buyers. It is worth mentioning that Rosa has 4 years of experience with this activity, which has allowed her to maintain an established clientele in both businesses. Her domestic partner arduously supports her in the activities he does, and there is a good family relationship between the two of them.

Currently, Rosa has proposed the expansion of her inventory in her commercial establishment (store) and the raising, fattening, and selling of small animals. The reason for this is that it is a very profitable activity in this area. Thus, she is asking for a new loan for a total of S/.1,500 nuevos soles, which will be used to invest in the purchase of merchandise (groceries) and 2 shelves for this business. Also she will buy nutritionally balanced food, vitamins, and vaccinations and better the corrals where her animals live. In time this will allow her to better her quality of life and that of her family.

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.
