Update on Jose Fernando

José has decided on a new loan because of the need to invest more in his agricultural business. He is ready to plant again, and to do so he needs to buy seeds and manure, rent the land, and clear the area where he plants. This loan will make it possible to do his work in the field.

He managed to have a positive effect with the previous loan. It helped him produce a ‘manzana’ [a land measurement unit equivalent to 7000 square meters] of corn. He got a good harvest, which he was able to store to feed his family. He also sold part of the harvest, and his family situation is stable.

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.
