Tidiness and cleanliness are the main characteristics of Luis’ small workshop, where he repairs a great number of tires every day. At the same time, he offers high-quality products and excellent service. He is 42 years old, married with three children. He is a hard-working and enterprising man. He started his business 14 years ago with the aim to improve his economic situation and, bit by bit, with the help of his wife, he got ahead.

Luis aks for a new loan to buy a compressor engine. With this engine, he hopes to be able to repair more tires, because it will streamline his work. So he will be able to attract more customers.

He is very grateful for his first Kiva loan via MiCrédito, because he could buy products for the small grocery store of his wife, which was a great economic support for the family. Therefore, he hopes to be able to continue to work and to offer his family an education and good health.

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.
