Update on Fidelia

Fidelia is 61 years old, and the single mother of three adult children. She is very determined, as at a young age she went to the capital to work, where she served as a nanny for more than 20 years. During that time, she managed her money very well, and built a small adobe house for her parents, who lived in a town far from where she was working.

She has always been a person who has done her very best for her family's progress in life, and thanks to all that effort, she has a store where she sells basic household necessities.

She buys merchandise in the city, and travels in private transportation. This is because a couple of years ago, she suffered a fracture in one of her feet, which makes it impossible for her to walk well. It takes 30 minutes in private transport for her to make her purchases, which she does with her daughter.

The loan she is requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy merchandise for her store, due to the fact that this is the time of year when she sells the most, and she wishes to offer more to her customers.

What she intends is to have a stable financial situation, so that she can undertake improvements to her home, and also so that her store can be better positioned in the community.

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.
