He got a job as a masonry assistant and was able to help his parents with the household expenses. Moisés is married and his wife takes care of their two children, ages 2 and 11 months.

Moisés works at a barber shop since he has been learning the trade since he was 11 years old. In addition, he knows a little bit about masonry and carpentry. The place where he works is located 10 kilometers from his house. He leaves his house at 6:30 A.M., boards a bus, and walks a block to his job. His schedule is from 7:30 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.

The loan he is requesting will be used to buy medicines for one of his children who is sick and needs this treatment. Moisés dreams of having his own barber shop and providing an education for his children so that they can accomplish more than he did. He wants them to be honest and responsible people and not have to suffer the problems that he encountered.

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.
