Update on Nestor Julio

Néstor is 59 years old. He is single and lives together with his mother in a small village in the agricultural district of Tambogrande, in Piura province, in the region of the same name, more than three and a half hours from the city of Chiclayo. This area is known for its fruit production (mangos and lemons) and for the fact that most of its residents enjoy a fairly precarious quality of life.

Néstor farms in order to earn a living. He has a small plot of land where he grows lemons. He harvest these and sells them to processing plants in his area. He also has sheep which he raises and then sells in the market in his district. He uses the income that he makes from this business to get ahead in life and provide his mother with a better quality of life.

Néstor would like to maintain his crops and enjoy a good production. He has requested a loan for 2,000 soles from Edpyme Alternativa in order to invest in buying fertilizers for his crops and feed for his sheep.

Néstor's previous Kiva loan had positive results. For this reason, he is grateful to the people who are cooperating in providing his loan. He thanks his lenders in advance.

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.
