Update on Rosa MilagroRosa Milagro, 54, lives with her spouse and children in a house of her own. She has a very well-known "pupusa" [grilled, stuffed corn cake] shop in her neighborhood where she sells the most delicious pupusas in the area. She sells “revueltas” [stuffed with mixed ingredients], cheese and bean pupusas, among others. She has attained a large clientele because everything she makes is made with good quality ingredients and her prices are affordable.
Rosa is a very hardworking woman who is ready to take advantage of opportunities that arise. She has many future goals. She believes that self-fulfillment is the greatest service one can give the world and this is how she decided to ask Integral for a loan that will make it possible for her to buy corn, rice, cheese, beans, fried pork skin, etc. Rosa Milagro trusts that just like the last time that she asked from Integral and she pushed to improve her business, this time it will be still better.
Previous Loan DetailsRosa Milagro is fifty four years old and she lives with her life's companion. She has a pupuseria with which she supports her family. She lives somewhere with a lot of people and her pupuseria is very well known because the pupusas she makes are unsurpassed and she sells them at accessible prices.… More from Rosa Milagro's previous loan »

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.
