Update on Nestor Antonio

Upon entering Nestor’s small mechanics shop, one can see the hard work that he does, from repairing lights to completely refinishing auto bodies that are in poor condition. He is a young man, age 32, who in spite of not completing his schooling, did not give up, but looked for a productive way to get ahead. He learned the trade when he worked as an assistant in different repair shops.

Every day he gets up with a lot of enthusiasm and energy, and thanks to the good work that he does, he has earned good customers. In order to keep fighting for his goals, he is requesting a loan.

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.
