Update on Adrian

Adrian is a hard-working, responsible and humble person who lives together with his family in a community in the south of Honduras. He has been selling pigs for the past few years. He works from his house and in the neighboring communities in his municipality.

Adrian needs the loan to buy more pigs and concentrated feed to sustain them. Then he can continue running his business which generates most of his income. Adrian hopes with the loan to increase his sales considerably and this will help him a lot as now he does not have the products that his clients are demanding from him each day.

Thanks to this he could improve his family's quality of living with the increase of revenue into his home. He hopes in the short term to expand his business and doing this continue to support his family and provide his children with the education they need to have better opportunities in life.

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.
