Update on Giovany

Giovany is currently 24 years old and continues to live with her husband and young son in the village of Vallecito, a rural area in the farming district of Tambogrande, which is located in the region of Piura.

Giovany began raising and selling sheep a few months ago. She now has about 25 heads of sheep, which she keeps in a pen near her home. In addition, she continues to work with her husband on his lime plantation. The fruits are harvested in order to be sold to the local collection centers.

At the moment, Giovany wants to acquire a small extension of land that measures a half hectare. She wants to plant more lime trees so that she can increase her monthly income. In order to accomplish her goals, she is requesting a loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 3,500 PEN. She already had a previous Kiva loan that was repaid on time. Giovany is very grateful to everyone who helped her on that occasion.

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.
