Update on Maria Beatriz

María, 38, is married and lives with her husband and children in Ventanas Canton, Los Ríos Province. She’s a member of the “Venceremos Unidos” (We Will Triumph Together) communal bank located in Recinto Anchoveta on the way to Recinto La Templanza that belongs to Pueblo Viejo Canton. This communal bank is involved with agricultural activities related to short cycle corn and rice crops.

María Beatriz has been growing corn and rice for several years now. She buys the products in Ventanas and sells them in a market there and in Pueblo Viejo Canton. She’s asking for the loan to buy manure, urea and liquid fertilizer for the corn and rice crops. The loan has helped her increase income for her family’s consumption and to invest. Her dream is to have enough money to buy a tractor to work her land. She likes to clean her house and to cook for the family when they get together on Sundays.

About Cooperativa San Jose

This loan is administered by Cooperativa San Jose, a 45,000-member credit union located high in the Andes Mountains of Ecuador’s poorest province, Bolivar. They offer a unique loan called “Ventanillas Rurales” [Window to the Countryside], which uses a group guarantee but is an individual loan with a savings component, mostly to rural borrowers. Due to low savings rates and a history of macroeconomic instability, many traditional loans in Ecuador demand interest rates that are prohibitively high for some borrowers. There is also a high incidence of extortionist black-market lending in Ecuador. CSJ helps mitigate these problems by providing a less onerous and more appropriate option. Join CSJ’s Lending Team!

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.
