Update on Juan Francisco

Juan is 72 years old. He has a common-law partner and two children. He began his working life at age 12 because his family is very large and he has 7 siblings, so he had to work very hard to help them. At age 17 he met his partner and had two children; one of them was able to finish his studies.

The loan he is applying for from Fundación Campo is to buy farming supplies and to prepare the ground to sow 14,000 square metres of corn. He hopes to get a good harvest so his income improves and to diversify his crops; he is thinking about growing jícama (edible tuber similar to but larger than an onion.)

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.
