Update on Maria Fidencia

Mary is 34 years old, married and has four children under her care. She lives in her own house, which is located in a village of the District of Tambogrande, belonging to the Piura region. It is a four-hour drive from the city of Chiclayo, capital of the department of Lambayeque. Mary lives in the rural part of this district, and only benefits from basic electrical services.

Over the past ten years Mary dedicated herself to raising small livestock such as pigs and poultry (chickens and turkeys), breeding, fattening and then selling them at the local market. Her husband is a farmer with one hectare of land (approximately 2.5 acres) where he grows limes that he harvests weekly. With the income earned from this activity he is able to cover his expenses and those of his family.

Mary has had problems with her livestock due to the constant raining in the area. She needs to put roofing over the livestock breeding pens, in order to protect them from the elements and keep them from dying because of weather conditions. To achieve this goal she decided to apply for a loan of 2000 soles.

Mary and her husband support each other, facing family expenses together and caring for their children. There is a good family relationship, which helps them to keep expanding their business activities.

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.
