Update on Emiliana

Señora Emiliana is 66 years old and is married to Sr. Carmelo who is 49 years old. They have one young dependent son who is studying in secondary school, and they live in the rural community of Melga Chimpa Rodea, which is 33 km from the city of Cochabamba. The whole family makes a living through agriculture by producing potatoes, broad beans, and peas, with crop rotation on two hectares of land that she inherited from her parents.

Doña Emiliana needs the capital to buy agricultural supplies (organic fertilizer is cheap this time of year) so that in the following agricultural season she will have fertilizer stored up. She needs some of it to buy agrochemical products for phytosanitary treatment (which protects against pests and diseases) in order to guarantee food safety. She also needs the finances to have savings. She says that it will increase the production of potatoes for a year, thus she will have enough income to support her son until he finishes his higher education.

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.
