Update on José Plinio

José is 54 years old, married, and has six children, four of whom are living with him. Three of his children used to live with him, but one more is now living with him after living abroad. He has worked for many years as a "promotor de salud" [healthcare work, but role isn't clear] at the same time as working in agriculture, although he has worked in agriculture longer - sowing corn, sorghum, beans, and raising cattle. To buy the products he needs, José walks 800 m along an unpaved road, across a stream, and up a hill to arrive at the bus stop where he takes the bus for 35 minutes.

The loan that he is requesting from Fundación Campo, is to clean up his land where the cattle graze, to repair fences, to buy school supplies for his children, and to buy some household appliances. The money will be of great help to his children, so that they can go to school and not miss classes, and so that his animals have good grass to graze on. his dream is to build a better house for his children.

Don José tiene 54 años de edad, es casado y tiene seis hijos de los cuales cuatro viven con él; vivian tres con él pero ha venido uno del extranjero. Él tiene varios años de ser promotor de salud y a la vez agricultor aunque en esta actividad tiene más tiempo de desarrollarla, siembra maíz, maicillo, frijol y se dedica a cuidar ganado. Para comprar los productos él camina unos 800 metros por una calle balastreada, pasa por un riachuelo, sube una cuesta hasta llegar al lugar en donde aborda el autobús que tarda unos treinta y cinco minutos.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para limpiar los terrenos donde pasta el ganado, reparara cercos, comprara útiles escolares a sus hijos y algunos electrodomésticos. El dinero será de gran ayuda a sus hijos, porque así asistirán a la escuela y no perderán las clases y sus animales tendrán buen pasto. Su deseo es construir una mejor casa para sus hijos.

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.
