Update on Teodoro

Teodoro continues his work selling vegetables that he buys in bulk, like onions, tomato, potatoes and sweet peppers. He buys from vendors who bring these fresh and delicious products from the north of the country. His grown children and his wife help him out with his business.

He did not make a profit for the last two months because the cost of vegetables increased due to a loss of harvest during the rains, and also because his customers didn't buy a lot. The price is stable today. What helps him out is that he has a truck and also hauls goods for extra money.

With this new loan he wants to buy potatoes, onion, tomato and sweet peppers in bulk, with the goal of improving his sales and meeting his customers' demands so that he can maintain his clientele. He continues investing the loans in wholesale products.

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.
