Update on Celsa Dinora

Celsa is 51 years old and has a son. From a young age, she started helping her mother with the household chores. She also helped his father by bringing him the food to his workplace. Since it was a big family with few economic resources, she could not study and had to quit after a few basic courses. With time, she got married and had a son. Her life partner travelled to the United States and for a while was making sure they received some support. However, she has not heard from him for two years, only that he met another woman in the United States.

Her son, who is 16, is a student. During the weekends he works in agriculture and other activities in order to receive some income for the family. She works in agriculture with the help of her son and day laborers that she hires. With a lot of effort, she has managed to help her only son to get ahead. She has been doing this since she was very young. When she got married, her husband helped her to take care of 7,000 m2 planted with corn. She always hires laborers. Her plantations are located 1 km away from her house.

She will use the loan to buy agricultural supplies such as compost and fertilizer and to pay for the labor needed to prepare the land for the crops. She hopes to improve the plantations in order to have a more abundant harvest. In the future, she wants to see her son get ahead and pay for his studies, including the university if possible. With the loans she has received and with her hard work she will reach this goal. She will invest her profits in her son and to cover the family’s daily expenses.

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.
