Update on Domingo Antonio

Domingo Antonio, 50, lives in his own house with his wife, two children, and three grandchildren, who help him with the harvest. He is a farmer, and for more than 25 years, he has planted beans and corn, which has given him a lot of experience with these crops. He has been able to help his family advance with the sales from his harvests. Domingo wants to increase his production and hire other people to help him with the harvests. He also has new plans for his farm, like raising chickens, as the photo shows. But he doesn't have enough capital to be able to do it. So he decided to apply for a loan that will allow him to buy corn and bean seeds, insecticide, manure, some work tools, etc. He is confident he will be able to pay back the loan and give his family what they need with no limitations.

More information about this loan

This loan is part of Apoyo Integral's program to help subsistence farmers located in high-risk regions of El Salvador, including coastal strips, river banks, and volcano fault lines. The program, which offers reduced interest rates, targets farmers who don't qualify for formal funding due to their low-income and geographical risk.

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.
