Update on Jesus Maria

Jesús María is 57 years of age, recently widowed, and lives with her son. She has her own house in a village located 10 kilometers from the Las Lomas district. Her home has electricity but lacks piped water and sewage facilities.

Jesús María has a small store in her home, which she has run for about eight years. In her store she sells various basic products to her neighbors and customers from the area, such as staple items and groceries. Her business has been warmly welcomed in the area, and she also works raising and selling pigs. These businesses allow her to help her family get ahead.

Jesús María wants to expand her business by acquiring more products, thereby improving her income. This is why she has requested a loan of 2,500 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa, which will help her to meet this goal. Jesus Maria is a hard-working and good-natured woman, and everyone who knows her thinks highly of her. She has already had loans managed through Kiva funds in the past, and is thankful to those people who helped her to get ahead during those times. She also thanks the people who will support her in this loan.

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.
