Update on Dora Lorena

Dora is a 20-year old mother who lives with her husband and small child in one of the rural zones that comprises the agricultural district of Tambogrande. This area is known for its mango and lemon production, and the majority of its population centers lack even basic public utilities. In the case of the town of Dora, there is only the service of electricity.

She has dedicated herself to raising sheep, pigs and fowl for more than five years. She has pens installed at her house, where she keeps her animals and feeds them grains and natural grasses. When they have reached peak growth, she offers them for sale at the local market.

Dora wants to buy balanced feed so that her animals develop better. She also wants to put roofs on her corrals given that the zone is very sunny, which is harmful, and some of her animals died. To meet her objective, she has decided to ask Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 1000 Peruvian soles.

She has already had loans with Kiva, and is very grateful to the people who collaborated with her in that opportunity. She gives thanks in advance to those individuals who may help her again this time.

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.
