Update on María Yomaira

The members of the communal bank Trabajando Para Un Futuro [Working for a Future] meet every two weeks in Rocafuerte canton. Rocafuerte is famous all over the country for its delicious sweets made by the locals, as well as the warmth of its kind and hard-working people.

29-year-old Maria lives here with her husband and their three children aged 7, 5, and 1. Her husband works in farming, and they need a loan to pay for labor to control the sprouting of weeds and to prepare several plots of land so they are able to sow again. They want to take advantage of the winter and sow corn on high ground and rice in plots where it can be watered. They sow throughout the year because they have water-pumping equipment.

She is requesting another loan because with the previous loan she was able to pay for labor to harvest the crop. They managed to store the harvest for a few months and then sold it at better prices and got higher profits. This loan is again for labor costs. She has been a member of the communal bank from the beginning and she likes it because she can use the loans to help her husband out.

Her dream is to give her children a good education.

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.
