Update on Juan Alberto

With his previous Kiva loan, Juan bought organic supplies, crates, combs, and cores to produce the honey which he sold. He also bought merchandise that he wife sold, and both of them increased their working capital.

He is about to receive a new Kiva loan to buy supplies for his apiaries because he wants to keep them strong. He will also replaster the walls of his house because his goal is to make it more comfortable. He is grateful to Kiva for all of this and hopes the lenders will continue to support small producers so that they can increase their incomes as he has been doing until now.

Juan con su anterior credikiva compró materiales biológicos, cajas, láminas de cera y núcleos para producir la miel de abejas que comercializó como estaba previsto; así mismo invirtió en mercancía que su esposa vendió y cada uno logró aumentar su capital de trabajo. En la actualidad se prepara para recibir un nuevo credikiva con el cual comprara materiales para sus apiarios, pues desea continuar fortalecerlos.

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.
