Update on Marlon Rodolfo

This young man, Marlon, is an enterprising, fighting and very humble person. Since he was young, his father has taught him to work the land. He lives in the municipality of Ticuantepe, in the area known as Dispersas. During the week, he works together with his father and other brothers in the coffee harvest. On the weekends, he is dedicated to studying. His greatest life dream is to become a professional.

With this loan, he will buy the necessary supplies to combat the pests that attack his crops. He also needs fertilizers and manure in order to take advantage of the rains. These things will make quality coffee.

He is thankful for the support that Afodenic and Kiva have offered him.

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.
