Update on Marvin Alonso

Marvin Alonso is 46 years old, married, and has three children of 12, 21, and 28 years old, 2 of whom are still under his care and are studying. He is from Managua, a place in the central zone of the country. In his spare time he likes to go to the movies or watch soccer games. Unfortunately, due to a lack of economic resources, he was not able to study at university, but he would have liked to have taken a degree and been an automotive engineer.
Thanks to his spirit and his desire to be successful, he works selling vehicle parts. He likes this work very much and he works 10 hours a day in his business. To date, this has been his livelihood and that of his family. The goal of this loan is to invest in business capital and to buy vehicle parts such as rims, tires, motor valves, and spark plugs so that, in the near future, he will have a better income. Marvin Alonso is grateful for the help that the Kiva lenders offer to people who have scarce resources and to poor countries like Nicaragua so they have dignified work.

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.
