Update on Maria Raquel

María is requesting a new loan in order to prepare for the winter season by purchasing agricultural supplies and improving her house. This will allow her to get manure, herbicides, insecticides, pesticides, and seeds. It will allow her to prepare the land and pay for other expenses.

The previous loan allowed her to cultivate the land that she wanted to, and she managed to pay the rent for the land. Her family circumstances have remained constant, and the income has improved.

Her wish is to continue working with the crops in order to improve her home, to get her children ahead, and to later have another type of business.

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.
