Update on Daniel Antonio

Daniel is a enterprising young man who is 24 years of age. He lives with his partner, who is a housewife and takes care of their four-year-old daughter.

Don Daniel decided to learn the trade of raising and fattening cattle by grazing. He also pursues other productive activities such as growing pumpkins and corn, buying and selling milk and other dairy products, and maintaining a press for drying cheese. His workday begins at 5:30 A.M. when he buys the milk from neighbors in his community who own dairy cows. To complete the process, he travels in his vehicle to the city so that he can sell the milk to wholesale vendors, but he sets aside a certain amount that he can process at home.

When he purchases steers for fattening, he travels by truck to the community of El Tiangue, which is a 45 minute trip. When he arrives, he inspects the animals with great care so that he can choose the best ones. Once he makes his purchase, it can take him up to half a day for him to return home.

The loan he is requesting from Fundación Campo will be used to buy four steers for fattening. This will enable him to increase his herd of cattle, which will be a great benefit because he can continue to make more sales. As a result, his earnings will increase and he can continue working.

Daniel is confident that he will earn more income since he is able to put in a lot more hours into his work. This will enable him to support his family by providing for all of their basic needs and establishing some savings so that they can build a house. They currently live in someone else's home.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is part of a CrediCampo project to help rural farmers living in extreme poverty plant basic grains to feed their families. Excess product is sold on the local market. These loans are smaller than the typical loans offered by this field partner, and guarantee requirements are also reduced. Individuals who receive this type of loan also get access to technical assistance, information on good environmental practices and increased access to farm inputs like fertilizer. This is considered a high risk loan due to the population and loan purpose, and CrediCampo is one of the very few institutions in El Salvador willing to working with these farmers.

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.
