Update on Felipe

Felipe is requesting a new loan because this loan will be of great help to produce more abundant harvests. He will invest it in paying labor costs to prepare a ‘manzana’ [Central American unit of land measurement] of land to plant corn. It will also make it possible for him to buy manure, herbicide, fungicide and insecticide to do his planting.

He used his previous loan to buy basic grains and had good results because he increased his crop yield. His family circumstances have improved thanks to the income he was able to earn. The only thing is that his son suffered a fatal accident; even so however, he continues striving much to continue working with the institution.

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.
