Update on Juan MaríaJuan Maria is a responsible, hardworking person who has previously taken loans from Edpyme Alternativa with Kiva's support. Indeed, he has punctually owned up to his previous commitments with these institutions.
Given that he lives in a rural area with no access to basic services and which can be hard to reach for many other credit providers, the work that Edpyme and Kiva carry out in allowing access to capital for entrepreneurs like Juan Maria is crucial.

Moreover, he has a small area where he raises poultry to provide additional income for his children.

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.
