Update on Rosa Aurelia

Rosa Aurelia, 52, is married and has one dependent son. She lives in her own house with her husband and son. The house is located in Totoral Bajo, a rural community located thirty minutes from the agricultural district of Tambogrande. Her community is populated by humble people who want to improve. At the moment it already has electricity.

The activity she carries out is raising sheep, pigs and barnyard fowl to sell. She raises her animals in her back yard. When they develop sufficiently she sells them to area merchants and sometimes in the district market. She’s been in this business for about 7 years. In addition, together with her husband she owns a parcel of land where they have planted mangoes and corn. With income they both earn from these activities they support their family.

Rosa Aurelia wants to buy nutritionally balanced feed and grains at wholesale to improve her animals’ nutrition; she also wants to make improvements to her corrals. With this investment her animals will develop better and will be sold at a better price.

She has already had a loan financed through Kiva and with that support was able to increase her income since the animals she bought developed properly and were sold at a better price. Because of this she’s quite grateful to the people who collaborated with her on that occasion and also avails herself of this opportunity to thank those who will support her now in advance.

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.
