Update on Maria Consuelo

María Consuelo is 31 years old and married with four children. She lives in northern Peru with her husband and children in the rural area of the Tambogrande District, Piura Province.

María raises sheep, poultry and pigs in a place close to her house. She fattens them with balanced feed and when they have reached an adequate level of development, she sells them to her neighbors and to the merchants who come to her place. This business activity allows her to help her family with the daily expenses.

María has also developed a passion for farming and she primarily grows lemons. She harvests the lemons and then sells them to her neighbors. They buy her products because of the reliability and good quality. María always works hard to be able to get her family ahead.

María has successfully repaid a previous Kiva-funded loan, and this will be her second. She plans to use this loan to buy more balanced feed for her livestock, as well as fertilizers for her lemon crop. She has proven to be a responsible person who knows her business well and wants to take advantage of potential opportunities in her area of work.

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.
