Update on Jose Anibal

José has decided to continue working with loans because he believes that they are very necessary in order to have the money he needs for his agricultural work. He’s currently starting a new planting cycle and needs to buy manure, seeds and pay for day laborers, among other expenses he has. This new loan will be very useful for him.

His experience with his previous loan was positive because it provided what he needed at the time so that his crop yield would be good. His family has been fed and everyone lives well at home; the children continue in school and he’s made some improvements to parts of his house thanks to it.

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.
