Update on Mario De Jesus

Mario is 53 years old. He is from Estelí, and the father of three children, only one of whom is in his care, as the others are adults and live independently. He is a merchant by trade and sells basic staples. He also owns some mills.

He started his business with his own money, buying two mills at the age of 42. This was his first business, and he is supported by his life companion who helps him with the milling work. He used to raise livestock. He doesn't have other income, but says that the business is very good, as it has generated good earnings for him.

He is applying for the loan to buy staples such as corn, beans, rice and sugar. This will help him because he will be able to invest more in his business, with the objective of moving forward together with his family.

In the future he hopes to manage to buy a place where he can have his business, as this would reduce his expenses since he would stop paying rent. His near-term goal is to continue working in order to see his business grow, and also to keep educating his children so that they can study to be professionals.

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.
