Update on Pedro Julio

Sr. Pedro lives in the District of Chinchaya, which is located 40 minutes away from the central part of the city. In this area, the residents raise dairy cattle. The women are in charge of planting vegetables while the men wash sand and stones taken from the river so that they can be used for construction.

Sr. Pedro has lived in this area his entire life. He previously had a job washing sand, but now that he is a bit older, his current job involves maintaining a pet cemetery. Pedro came to Emprender thanks to his son Eusebio, who recommended that he take advantage of the loans.

Sr. Pedro is a cheerful and hardworking person. He is requesting a loan to pay for maintenance of the pet cemetery. His work consists primarily of digging new pet graves and making sure the place is always kept clean, which has associated expenses such as the purchase of equipment and cleaning supplies. Sr. Pedro is grateful to Emprender for his previous loan, which he utilized successfully by purchasing tools.

El Sr. Pedro vive en la zona de chinchaya que está ubicada a cuarenta minutos del centro de la ciudad. En esta localidad los Comunarios se dedican a la crianza de vacas lecheras y al sembradío de verduras en el caso de las mujeres y los hombres al lavado de arena y piedra para construcción que sacan del rio. El Sr. Pedro vive acá toda su vida y antes se dedicaba a lavar arena pero como ya es un poco mayor de edad ahora trababa realizando el mantenimiento en el cementerio de mascotas. Él llegó a nuestra institución gracias a su hijo Eusebio quien lo recomendó para que trabaje con préstamos, el Sr. Pedro es una persona alegre y muy trabajadora y solicita el préstamo para realizar el mantenimiento del cementerio de mascotas, ya que su trabajo consiste principalmente en cavar nuevas tumbas para mascotas y hacer que el lugar siempre se vea limpio, y esto implica un gasto en lo que es la compra de herramientas e insumos de aseo, el Sr. Pedro se encuentra agradecido con la institución ya que en anterior crédito le fue muy bien con la compra de herramientas.

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.
