Update on Ángela

Angela has been working as a farmer for 21 years on land where she has planted pineapples and coffee. Her children are adults, and two of them work and help her out economically. The others help her with the farming. She got her house through a housing project. She sells her crops in the market. She has buyers to whom she sells all of her harvest. The loans she’s obtained through AFODENIC have been well invested in the land that she plants. The requested loan is to maintain two manzanas [unit of land] of pineapple. For this she needs to buy fertilizers and manure, among other things, so that she can continue to offer good products to her clients, who have worked with her and bought her fruit for years.

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.
