Update on Julio CesarJulio is fifty-one years old, has a life companion, and has three children. He has a lot of experience in the seafood business. He learned this business together with his life companion; they did not have permanent employment and opted for this form of subsistence. They also make a living in raising pigs, fattening and selling them.
To buy the seafood, they rise at 5:00am to go to the closest market where the island and beach fishermen come to sell their products. Later, Julio travels by bus to resell the seafood.
The loan he is requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy seafood and four pigs for fattening. In doing this, he will supply the demand of his clients and will be able to serve more potential clients, thereby obtaining a good income for the family.
He hopes to save up in order to buy himself a pick-up truck so that he can make his trips more quickly and easily.

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.
