Update on José Mauricio

José is 43 years old, married and has four children. José has been working with his parents and siblings in agriculture since a very young age. As the eldest sibling, José had the most responsibility. At 19, he found a partner but continued to work alongside his father. When his first children were born, José started to work alone. José must travel 15km from his home to buy farming supplies. He must pay for transport to take the goods to his home and, then, he must pay for a cart to take them to his land.

José is applying for a loan from "Fundación Campo" to buy fertiliser and manure, to prepare the land and to pay for labour costs, all to grow corn. He hopes to improve his harvest through the timely and correct use of these supplies. He hopes he will have an abundant yield and that he will have the opportunity to send his children to school and university.

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.
