Update on Yolanda

Yolanda, 44, is married living in her own house with her husband and children. The zone they live in is a settlement located ten minutes from the city of Lambayeque. Lambayeque Province is located twenty minutes from the city of Chiclayo.

Her activity is raising animals to sell; she raises pigs, sheep, goats and barnyard fowl that she sells bi-weekly in markets in Chiclayo and Lambayeque. Yolanda raises her animals in corrals located in her yard. Her husband works in agriculture and with the income they both earn they try to move their family forward.

Yolanda wants to buy nutritionally balanced animal feed so that she can earn higher income above all this season when sales increase due to the approaching Christmas festivities. To reach her objective, she’s thought it convenient to request a 1,500 new sol loan from Edpyme Alternativa.

Yolanda has had previous loans through Kiva and was able to move her business ahead with them and used profits to do some home improvements. She’s quite grateful to the people who supported her on that occasion and gives thanks in advance to those who will help her now.

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.
