Update on Oscar Antonio

Oscar lives in the town of San Caralampio with his wife and children. They work the land and grow pitaya [dragon fruit]. At this time, he needs capital to do some maintenance on his crop since due to the weather and pests the pitayas are somewhat small and he is afraid he won't be able to sell them. With this new loan, he will buy necessary materials, such as urea and others. Oscar is very satisfied with this new opportunity that Afodenic is offering through the Kiva Fund. They are offering him this loan because with this help he will be able to get his pitaya ahead and his income will improve. Oscar tells us he is happy with the trust given to small farmers such as he is.

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.
