Update on Freddy Daniel

Freddy Daniel is 54 years old and married with three adult children, who all live on their own. Freddy is originally from the department of Chinandega, which is located in the western region of the country. Chinandega is known for being a productive commercial area.

Freddy's business is a welding shop. He has been in business for 45 years, and has it set up in his home. Freddy works with both regular and occasional customers. His daily routine is getting up early to open the doors to the public eight hours a day for all kinds of welding jobs. He learned the trade when he was very young by working alongside his father, who was also a welder. He was able to set up his own shop thanks to his effort and eagerness to work so that he could have the means to support his family, even though currently he has a lighter load to carry since all of his children are working.

He needs this financing to invest in his business and purchase a welder so that he can offer his customers better service. Freddy has worked with Fundación León 2000 in the past and has proven himself to be a responsible person and a reliable borrower. He appreciates the help that Kiva investors offer people with limited resources in poor countries like Nicaragua so that they can earn a decent living.

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.
