Update on Juan José

Juan is 37 years old. He has a spouse and three children. Since he was a child, he worked with his brothers in farming and raising cattle. In his free time, he helped his father in the carpentry workshop. When he was 15 he started to really learn carpentry with his father, who trained him. He learned the trade well. At 20 years old, he married and started to work independently to buy tools little by little, and then he set up his own carpentry workshop.

He buys the raw materials in the closest lumberyards which are 5 kilometers from his house. Later he pays for transport of the wood to the workshop, but on some occasions he has to go further away to buy the raw materials when he can't find it in the same place.

The loan he is asking Fundación Campo for is to buy machinery for carpentry, as well as raw materials and other materials he needs. This way, he will offer a better service, increasing his customers and improving his family's finances.

His plans for the future are to expand with more machinery and employees in his carpentry shop.

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.
