Update on Rosa Maria

Rosa, 42, lives with her husband and children in their own house, but it doesn’t have basic utilities. Their home is located in the rural district of Tambogrande in Piura department which is a zone characterized by farming, cattle raising and arts and crafts. To get financing for a person like Rosa can be a little more difficult, and the work of Kiva and Edpyme Alternativa is crucial.

This is her second loan with Edpyme Alternativa and Kiva’s support and she has proven to be responsible in her payments. For about the last 6 years Rosa has sold groceries (products of daily use such as: milk, rice, oil, sugar, toilet paper, tuna, eggs, etc) cleaning articles and drinks. She has her business in her own house for her comfort and security. She tries to use the earnings from her sales to cover all the household needs and expenses.

To be able to continue consolidating her business and because of the success of her first loan, she has requested a loan from Edpyme Alternativa of 2000 new sols for working capital to buy pharmaceutical products and items for the business. Her only goal is that her business grows and she has more products to offer her customers.

Rosa is a hardworking person who is dedicated to her business and she worries about giving her family a comfortable life and offering opportunities to her 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.
