Update on Agueda De Jesus

Águeda de Jesús is an older adult, single mother from León, a place located in the western part of the country. She’s noted for being hardworking, responsible, of good habits; she had to start working at an early age to help with household expenses.

Thanks to her spirit and the drive to move forward, her economic activity is selling whole chickens and chicken parts. The activity is home-based. In the photo she can be seen with her freezers where she stores the chicken to sell to her customers.

The objective of the loan is to invest in working capital and stock her business with the purchase and sale of whole chicken and chicken parts so that in the not too distant future she can earn higher income.

She spends about 10 hours daily in her business and she does so gladly. Águeda is very grateful to Kiva lenders who provide support to people of scarce resources and to poor countries like Nicaragua so that they can have a dignified way of earning a living.

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.
