Update on Carlos

Carlos, 51, is a father living with his spouse and three children in his care. He lives with his family in his own house located in one of the settlements that make up Tambogrande District. The zone they live in is considered to be rural and does not have basic services. His activity is raising cattle, sheep, pigs and barnyard fowl that he sells in the local market when they reach ideal size and weight. He farms growing corn twice a year. He has more than 15 years’ experience in agriculture and animal husbandry. In addition, he’s also employed as a day laborer in a mango plantation and earns a monthly salary.

Carlos is requesting a 2,200 new sol loan to buy feed for his cattle and to buy fertilizer for the corn. He’s worked with Kiva funds previously and has done very well; he’s very grateful for that and noting the pleasant experience he’s had has decided to call on Kiva lenders once again so that they’ll help him get ahead. He gives thanks in advance for the support provided.

Additional Information

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.
