Update on Victoria

Victoria is a member of the “Reyna de los Angeles” community bank in Urubamba province in Cusco – Peru. She works in the production and wholesaling of vegetables, such beans and greens, and distributes them to markets in the region. She also raises and sells small animals, like guinea pigs and hens. In this loan cycle, Victoria will invest her funds in buying hens and guinea pigs, which she will fatten and then sell in the market. These activities are very common in this part of the region because of the climate of Urubamba is good for growing and cultivating vegetables and small animals.

Victoria is very grateful to Kiva for allowing her to give a better quality of life to her family since with these activities she can educate her children who are independent adults, and help them grow and strengthen their activities.

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.
