Update on Benedicta

Benedicta alternates her daily activities with a business raising small farm animals like guinea pigs. She raises these little animals in order to sell them later to her customers like restaurants and country recreation centers among others. She also raises livestock and has dairy cows which is an additional source of family income since she sells the milk from the cows. She is quite a cheerful, responsible person who very much wants to continue moving forward for her family. She’s asking for the loan to buy feed for her little animals like grass and alfalfa, among others, to increase her guinea pigs a bit.

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.
