Update on Oscar Antonio

Oscar is a fifty-year-old man who comes from a farming family. He has approximately 1.75 acres of land planted with pineapples, and also works as a security guard. This is because he alone has to cover the various household expense. His wife does not work as it is so difficult to find a job at the moment.

He has had problems with his crops due to pests, but he gets by as best he can, overcoming all obstacles. The loan which he is applying for is to buy insecticide, fertiliser and urea so as to take precautions against such problems. He hopes that, in the future, he will be able to plant 3.5 acres with pineapples, along with other crops for a bit of variety, and to leave his grandchildren secure jobs from which to make a living.

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.
