The member, Ana, continues farming and raising cows and small animals such as pigs, guinea pigs, and poultry and taking her little animals and crops to sell in different markets in Cusco. Now she wants to continue her businesses, to keep growing economically and to improve her sales. This has been a difficult year for agriculture since it rained a lot and almost ruined her crops. Ana wishes to use the loan to take her crops to sell by car to the city. She lives in a remote village and transportation is expensive. She will use the money to rent the transport to take her products for sale.

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.
