Update on Zaida Antonia

Zaida is a hard-working and entrepreneurial woman who used her previous loan to buy merchandise for her business. She managed to re-locate her business to one of the markets in the capital because, months ago, she suffered a robbery which left her with a lower quantity of merchandise. This affected her financial well-being as she didn't have enough stock to meet the needs of her current customers and wasn't able to continue paying for her sales spot. This led her to take other measures, deciding to move her business to another sales location.

Zaida needs this loan to invest in buying basic products such as rice, oil, beans, bath soap, clothing, hair cream, deodorants, candies, fruits, vegetables, etc. She is grateful to the financial institution for their support in developing her business, allowing her to re-stock it with a variety of products.

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.
