Update on Pedro Joaquin

Pedro always works together with his wife selling “fritanga”, a mix of different traditional Nicaraguan foods. He has been doing this for twelve years now, which has helped him pay for the education of his two children.

This is his second loan with AFODENIC. He will invest in his business and buy basic grains, plantains, different types of meat and vegetables. This will increase his sales and lead to a larger “fritanga” stall in the future. All of this is possible thanks to the financial support he has received, something he really appreciates.

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.
