Update on Jose Rudy

Currently, José is managing his workshop part-time and also selling fruits and vegetables on a wholesale basis. He travels to other areas to make his sales. He needs another loan to continue working with the fruit selling business, buying fruits such as mangoes, tamarind, bananas, etc. His reason for requesting another loan is that he needs to invest more and improve his sales.

The previous loan was of great help to him, since it allowed him to invest in his workshop, buying the tools he needed for his work. His circumstances have improved, and his family is doing better economically.

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.
