Update on Maria Yolanda

María is 38 years old and widowed. She lives in the village of Los Damianes in the district of Túcume. This region is characterized by humble and hardworking people who make their living in agriculture. It is located in the province of Lambayeque, more than forty minutes away from the city of Chiclayo.

María makes a living raising and selling sheep and some poultry. She raises the animals behind her house, and when they have matured to a good level, she sells them to the traders of the region and to the general public. Additionally, she makes and sells chicha de jora, a drink made of fermented maize. This business helps her to pay her personal expenses and to help sustain her family economically.

María would like to obtain more animals and balanced feed to increase her sales, since the demand is higher during the Christmas season. Likewise, she would like to obtain supplies to make chicha de jora. Therefore, she decided to apply for a loan of 2000 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa.

She has already had one loan which was financed by Kiva lenders. This loan helped her to maintain her business during a season, and she is very thankful for the people who supported her on that occasion. She would also like to thank those who will help her with this loan.

Additional Information

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.
