Update on Jairo

Jairo used his previous loan to buy steel, galvanized sheeting, iron, aluminum and paint. The CrediKiva loan was of great benefit to him because he bought the raw materials he needed to increase production. With the profits he earned he bought a bending machine and offered employment to two temporary workers. He was also able to meet customer commitments which was very positive for his image.

He is now requesting a new CrediKiva loan to buy materials such as steel, iron, aluminum, nails, glass, locks, cables, welding materials, pain, stone for the polishers, etc. His aim is to prepare for the immediate future in such a way as to impact his customers and increase sales.

Jairo sends the following messasge to Kiva lenders: "Your support is very important because with these resources I have been able to meet my goals and improve my family's living conditions."

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.
