Update on Daniel EzequielDaniel has been a farmer his whole life. With the previous loans he has maintained his crops of dragonfruit, pineapple, vegetables such as ayote and pipian (types of squash), etc. Thanks to his harvests the family has moved forward in life. But with this rainy season the harvest tends to become infested with pests and insects, so crop maintenance is recommended.
With the new loan, besides doing maintenance, Daniel will plant two manzanas (3.5 acres) of pineapple, so he needs fertilizers and adequate supplies for the optimal development of the crop.
He will also purchase pineapple seedlings to plant and cultivate. He is grateful for the staunch support that Afodenic and Kiva have provided 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.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.
