Update on Maria Soledad

María Soledad is a head of household, 31 years of age, who lives with her husband and their two children in their own home located in one of the hamlets making up the agricultural district of Chulucanas, situated in the province of Morropón in the Piura region.

She has had previous loans through Kiva. Previously she devoted herself exclusively to the sale of cosmetics. Currently, thanks to the earnings she obtained during this entire time of working, she has been able to set up a grocery store in her living quarters where she offers her customers (who are mainly neighbors in the hamlet where she resides) a variety of staple products, groceries and drinks. She also devotes herself to raising small farm animals (sheep, pigs and poultry) which she sells in the local market once they reach the ideal weight and size. Her husband works as a security guard at a large agricultural operation in the area.

María Soledad wishes to acquire a refrigerator since she wishes to go into frozen drink sales. This line of business has a lot of demand in the area since the place where she lives sees high temperatures for most of the year.

María Soledad appreciaes the support she has been given through Kiva up to the present.

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.
