Update on Avelina

Avelina is now 42 years old, she lives with her life partner and has 3 young children aged between 7 and 13. She is currently living in the Urubamba Province, located at about half an hour away from the town of Cusco. Her main economic activities are retailer, farmer and livestock breeder, definitely very demanding activities requiring a lot of time and effort. The products she mainly sells are maize, pulses, lettuce, pumpkin and vegetables. On top of this she also sells cattle but in lesser quantities and in a not very constant manner.

She wants to improve her earnings by offering a bigger amount of products of better quality; she is therefore requesting a loan to buy more farming supplies and more cattle, so that she will also be able to contribute to the education of her young children as well as to offer them a better standard of living.

Avelina is a member of “Virgen Natividad” (Virgin of the Nativity), a Communal Bank located in the Urubamba Province, Cusco, Perù.

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.
