Update on Pedro AntonioPedro Antonio lives in the municipality of El Sauce, which is located 90 kilometers from the department of León in western Nicaragua where the primary items produced are milk and honey. Pedro was born and grew up in this beautiful town full of graciousness. He feels very proud to be from there, despite the fact that he comes from a humble, poor but very hardworking and striving family that has gotten ahead in the face of many adversities.
He works as a Health Inspector and rides around on a bicycle each day visiting houses to verify that things are clean and that there is standing water in order to prevent illnesses among the numerous families in El Sauce.
He is asking the Kiva investors to finance a loan for him through Ceprodel to buy medications and do medical exams, as his 9 month old daughter is sick and he wants to improve her health. He hopes and trusts in God that these people will support him so his little girl improves.
Don Pedro nació y creció en este bello pueblo lleno de bondades y se siente muy orgulloso de ser originario de él que a pesar de descender de una familia humilde, pobre pero muy trabajadora y luchadora que han salido adelante ante muchas adversidades.
Se desempeña como Inspector de enfermedades y a diario camina en una bicicleta visitando casa por casa para verificar que no haya suciedades ni almacenamiento de aguas con el fin de evitar enfermedades en las numerables familias sauceñas.
Está solicitando a los inversionistas de Kiva para que a través de Ceprodel le financien un crédito para la compra de medicamentos, realización de exámenes médicos, ya que tiene enferma a su pequeña niña de 9 meses y quiere mejorar su salud.
Espera y confía en Dios que estas personas le apoyen para que su niña mejore.

About CEPRODELThis loan is administered by Centro de Promocion del Desarrollo Local (CEPRODEL), one of Kiva’s larger partners in Central America. Founded in 1991 and based in Managua, Nicaragua, CEPRODEL specializes in the development and funding of housing cooperatives for traditionally marginalized communities, the provision of microfinance services to small businesses, and the promotion of innovative renewable energy projects. In addition, unlike many microfinance institutions in the area that have chosen to avoid the rural areas of the country due to the increased financial risk, CEPRODEL provides financial services to numerous clients in the agriculture and livestock industry. Supporting a borrower through CEPRODEL means contributing to the promotion and sustainability of this important work in Nicaragua.
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.

Photo from previous loan
Kiva allows our Field Partners to re-use the same photo for individual borrowers that have been posted on Kiva's website once before in a 24 month period, and we allow them to re-use group photos for up to 24 months, provided that 80% of the current group's membership is represented.
Taking, collecting, and uploading photos of borrowers is one of the most challenging elements of using Kiva for our Field Partners. In order to make Kiva easier for Field Partners to use, we have allowed them to post successive and concurrent loans without taking a new photo of the borrower if the criteria above are met.
