Update on Ana Mirian

Ana, 38, is a single mother of two. One is in fourth grade and the other one in seventh grade. Only her two children live with her, and they are dependent on her, which means she is the sole breadwinner in her household. Her main job for the last three years has been manufacturing piñatas. She learned how in a government-sponsored course given by the city. She also grows 7,000 square meters of sweetcorn, and her children help her by taking care of a small tilapia farm. Thus, she manages to support her children. Ana travels by bus from Monday to Saturday to her workshop. The loan will be used to buy supplies like paper, flour for the paste and wire for the piñata framework to make piñatas. Another part of it will be used to buy fertilizer, herbicide and pesticide, as well as feed for the fish farm. Ana says the loan will be very useful, because she will be able to make more piñatas, sell more of them, and also have a better harvest. Her dreams are to see her children complete their studies, to make her workshop grow, and to stay healthy in order to make her dreams, with the help of loans, become reality.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is part of a CrediCampo project to help rural farmers living in extreme poverty plant basic grains to feed their families. Excess product is sold on the local market. These loans are smaller than the typical loans offered by this field partner, and guarantee requirements are also reduced. Individuals who receive this type of loan also get access to technical assistance, information on good environmental practices and increased access to farm inputs like fertilizer. This is considered a high risk loan due to the population and loan purpose, and CrediCampo is one of the very few institutions in El Salvador willing to working with these farmers.

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.
