Enilda Del Carmen
Update on Enilda Del CarmenEnilda used her previous Kiva loan to do many things: she bought raw materials, sold frozen goods, bought merchandise and a display case that she keeps well-stocked to attract customers to attain her dream of owning a store. She is currently getting ready once again to invest in ingredients to make rice cakes, merchandise she needs because the year’s last trimester brings many joyful families with more resources coming from end of year bonuses and allowances for employees and she knows that they are always willing to buy from her and even able to pay an initial deposit for her products. She says that she feels blessed by Kiva and the Fundación and hopes that they will continue supporting her micro business so that she can continue to expand and strengthen it, to improve her standard of living and to take her daughter Danniela (who appears in the photo) to the university helping her to become a successful person.

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.
