Update on Lucila Dalila

Twenty-seven-year-old Lucila is the eldest daughter of a large family of 9 siblings who grew up close together under the care of their parents, who taught them very good principles, of which love and truthfulness are first and foremost. However, they also taught them to believe in God, and in his fairness.

Being the eldest, she had to help raise her other siblings, and this has transformed her into a second mother. However, she says that it has been difficult to confront life and fight alongside her parents to raise her other siblings, but that she has always put her trust in God. Her parents are together with her still, and some of her siblings; but life has given them satisfactions that fill her with happiness, knowing that she has helped to raise her younger siblings, supporting her parents in everything.

Lucila is a government employee, and she works in the local Health Unit. Since she has been working there, things have improved noticeably for her family and this has made their quality of life better. She comments that she has had to struggle in order to improve her home and to purchase some basic household equipment, so that little by little, things would continue changing in her simple home.

The loan will be used for the repayment of a debt incurred, as she needed a loan for the purchase of the basic household equipment mentioned above, which is now due.

Her plans for the future are to construct a masonry-block house, as the one she currently has is wattle and daub; and she comments that in her heart she has the desire to build a home for her parents where they could live with dignity.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is part of a project to help young men and women in El Salvador (under age 26) launch their own businesses. The field partner is reducing the guarantee for these individuals, who normally would not have access to loans due to their lack of experience. Unemployment for young people is high in El Salvador, a fact that motivates many of them to leave the country instead of searching for work. Aside from access to financing, clients will also be grouped together according to their business types to receive training from CrediCampo's social development unit, and to share advice and support with one another.

About CrediCampo

This loan is administered by CrediCampo, a Kiva Field Partner in El Salvador. CrediCampo seeks to improve the lives of rural communities and their families in areas including health, education, basic services, and infrastructure. Through its Community Development Unit, CrediCampo provides scholarships, leadership development training, and financial education programs for families in rural areas. CrediCampo’s work is crucial in addressing the issue of poverty in El Salvador. Based on 2009 estimates, 37.8% of the population lives below the poverty line.

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.
