Update on Maria Leucadia

Leucadia, 52, is married to Aristeo and has 7 children. The five who live with them are in primary and secondary school. She is a hardworking woman who wants to get ahead. For more than 12 years, she has grown avocados, since her region has the right conditions for good avocados and has two strong seasons for harvesting them. She makes good money out of the current season. Her children help her to cut the fruit and take them to sell them by the tray in the wholesale market of a nearby town. She says that when it is not the avocado season, she sells handicrafts from Ocoshal in the country's capital.

Doña Leucadia is seeking a loan to buy material for her crops and to keep her trees in good shape, such as insecticide, compost, fertilizers, lime and boxes in which to pack the avocados. Her goal is to keep up her business and to open up a market in different towns in her state so as to sell the fruit she grows more quickly. She thanks Kiva's Field Partner for helping her to buy what she needs to make her business grow.

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.
