Update on Amparo De Jesus

Amparo is 62 years old. She is an enterprising, hardworking person who is dedicated to domestic chores and raising small animals such as birds. She has been engaged in this business for two years and learned it thanks to a project that came to her community. Participants were given five hens to raise and she enjoyed it, so she decided to continue the project on her own. Today, she has several broiler chickens, and she also manages her own store where she sells staple goods.

She purchases the chickens in the city, and it’s a twenty minute walk to the bus stop. She will use the loan she is requesting from Fundaciòn Campo to purchase 100 broiler chicken and five sacks of concentrated feed. Her dream is to continue working to earn income to support herself, and to build a shed to improve conditions for the chickens.

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.
