Update on Walter

Walter, 32, has two school age children; he lives with his family in Zaña District located an hour away from the city of Chiclayo. He’s been raising sheep, barnyard fowl and cattle for the last three years. He fattens them up and once they reach ideal size and weight he sells them to local merchants. With income from this activity he’s able to cover his and his family’s expenses. Walter wants to improve his animals’ nutrition so that they will develop better and can be sold for a better price which is why he needs to ask Edpyme Alternativa for a 3,000 new sol loan to buy nutritionally balanced animal feed.

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.
