Update on Nelly Narcisa

In Tierras Amarillas, Rocafuerte, the Credit Group ‘Mejorando el Futuro’ meets every 15 days. This area is known for its agriculture as most of the population there work on the crops.

This is where Nelly, 50, lives. She is married and has eight children, six of whom are now adults. The younger two, who are 16 and 14, are studying at school. Four of her children still live in their home. Her husband works in agriculture.

Nelly works in the society with one of her sons. They sell milk, cheese and cattle. Her son uses their car to travel to different farms and collect the milk that they have just milked from their cows. Then he takes it to their house, where they use some of it to make delicious cheese, and the rest of it to sell it around the neighborhood together with the cheese they made the previous day.

Her husband will use part of this loan to buy fertilizer to help with his crops. He grows rice and corn. The rest of it will be used by Nelly to buy milk. She has been in the credit group since it began and she is grateful for the help it offers. Her dream is for her younger children to finish their studies.

Additional Information

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.
