Update on Geylin Amilcar

Geyling comes from Pueblo Nuevo, in the Municipality of Esteli. He is a businessman, and he works in agriculture. Geyling says that he used his first loan to purchase supplies such as manure and fertilizer. He feels that this was of great help because he was able to plant a crop of tomatoes and increase production. Without this loan, it wouldn't have been possible to have such a satisfactory harvest. He needs this second loan to purchase supplies such as manure and fertilizer and to pay his helping hand. He believes that with the income from selling tomatoes, he will be able to pay off the loan that we gave him, and this way, he will have better working capital to continue planting tomatoes, which is his plan for the future. He hopes to continue receiving Kiva's support to reach his dream of growing his business and having a better income so that he can give his family a better future.

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.
