Update on Maria Exilda

Maria is 53 years old and is a woman with a fighting spirit. She is married and has three children. She has her own house where she lives with her whole family. The house is located in the "Sector 0,5 Partidor" neighborhood, which is in the Las Lomas district in the province of Piura. The area she lives in is home to people who make their living planting fruit and in animal husbandry.

Maria and her family make their living in agriculture. They have one hectare of agricultural land where right now they have planted a mango plantation. Their land is located just a few meters from the back of the house. The produce is harvested and sold in the local market of the regions they live in. Sometimes they can sell to large customers in other areas. Her husband and children work in the business as well and as such they have an excellent family life.

To be able to sell the mangoes that they pick they need to buy "javas" [a receptacle used as a measure for sales of produce] in which they will be able to transport them and avoid damaging them. This is why they are requesting a loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 500 nuevos soles in order to improve the quality of their customer service and day by day make their business grow which will give her a better quality of life.

Her business has won her the care and respect of her neighbors by whom she is admired.

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.
