Update on Juan

Juan, who is 46 years old, lives with his wife and children in their own house. The house, which does not have basic services (utilities), is located in the rural zone of the district of Tambogrande, which belongs to the Piura department. In this zone people work in agriculture, livestock-raising, and handicrafts.

For several years Juan has raised and sold barnyard animals (sheep, pigs, and poultry). His pens are located behind his house, and they are suitable and big enough. He feeds the animals with balanced feed and natural grains so that they have an ideal growth and he can offer them for sale at the different markets in the zone and thus obtain good earnings to pay his family obligations.

He has applied to Edpyme Alternative for a loan of 1000 PEN for the purchase of balanced feed to produce healthy animals. With the earnings that he will obtain from the sale of his animals, he will be able to cover his loan as well as have a better quality of life. Juan is a person who with effort and much determination has known how to raise his family and offer his children other 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.
