Update on Maria Isabel

María, 34, lives with her common-law husband and two children in her own house in the district of Tambogrande, in an agricultural part of the district, in the province of Piura, about three and a half hours from the city of Chiclayo, capital of the Lambayeque Region.

She raises sheep and poultry in farmyards near her house, feeding them natural grains and fodder; and once they reach full development she sells them to merchants who visit the area. Also, her husband has land where he grows corn and beans. He also works on an organic banana plantation in his community. The income they have from their business allows them to support their family economically.

The loan will be used to buy corrugated iron to repair the roof of their house, since it has deteriorated due to the constant rain.

María's goal is to continue growing her business so she can gradually improve her family's quality of life. The people who know her believe she is a quiet, responsible person.

Additional Information

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.
