Update on Salvador De Jesus

With his previous loan Salvador bought ingredients and made delicious desserts which sold very quickly. The loan money came at an opportune moment as there was a lot of business during that season which made increasing production easier. He bought a thousand labels bearing the name of his business.

Salvador sends the following message to the donors who support him: “I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to improve my business.”

Now he is seeking another loan which he will use to buy ingredients for pastries and have a billboard made so that people will get to know more about his product. This investment will lead to even more success and make his desserts more widely known. In his experience a lot of business takes place in the current season.

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.
