Update on Fortunata

This group member is 35 years old. She is currently awaiting the birth of her fifth child. She is pregnant and happy about the arrival of her baby. She has completely changed her business and now works with a new business. She works buying and selling small animals, like guinea pigs, pigs, and poultry. She shared that when she buys a hen for 10 soles she can fatten it and later sell it for 25 soles. That is how the profits work with hens, and it is almost the same with the other animals, although guinea pigs are more profitable because they procreate quickly and then she has more to sell. She is dependent on her own labor and works very hard to increase her earnings and, together with her husband, help her young children and improve their home. She is asking for a loan to invest in the purchase of young animals.

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.
