Update on Delia De Jesús

Delia, age 38, went to school through the second grade. The lack of motivation and the needs that she experienced at that time did not allow her to go to continue going to school. She is married, and her life partner has been working in agriculture for 20 years. She has four children. The three oldest go to school and live with them. They are the only ones who are dependent upon Delia.

She is a housewife. She has also been working in agriculture since she was little and her father took her to the crops. This is because they were no big brothers to help them. The land where she works is one kilometer from her house. She gets there by foot. A brother is the one who is most involved, and they work together from six in the morning until twelve noon.

The loan will be invested in preparing the land for planting. Her dream is to first have what the family most needs. Therefore, she hopes to always work as long as God gifts her with good health and life.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is designed for rural women in El Salvador. Loan amounts are much smaller than average and the field partner is not requiring any guarantee for this type of loan. The goal is to support businesses that will enable women to work from their homes or start flexible businesses, as many of them are single mothers and are the sole caretakers for their families. Women who receive this type of loan also receive training on entrepreneurship, business management and budgeting.

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.
