Update on Salvador

Salvador is 45 years old and completed up to third grade at school. He is married; his wife is a housewife.

Salvador works for an organisation that exports coffee. He has been doing this work for three years and, as an additional source of income, he sells ice lollies from home. Salvador's workplace is a five minute motorcycle ride from his home. He works from 7am until 7pm.

Salvador is applying for this loan from "Fundación Campo" in order to buy a vehicle. Salvador used his previous loan to buy a motorcycle and this has improved his living conditions. Before he had to walk to work and when he went out to sell ice lollies. Now he can do this work on his motorcycle. Salvador will use this loan to buy a motorcycle which he can use for his work - he can run journeys for the organisation as on occasions there are no vehicles available to transport the coffee. Having this motorcycle would represent a higher income in his work.

Salvador's dream is to buy this motorcycle with the help of the loans provided by "Fundación Campo". He hopes to give his children the best he can and to prepare them to study at university and take on a profession.

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.
