The commercial activity in which Rocío works is selling beauty products. She has this small business set up in her own home, where she serves her customers who are already loyal. She also provides cosmetology services, and has two years of experience which has allowed her to keep her already established customer base in both businesses. Her parents support her heavily in the work that she does, and there's a good family relationship between them.

Rocío has currently proposed to expand her inventory in regards to her commercial establishment (her small business), owing to the fact that it is a very profitable activity in her neighborhood. For these reasons she is requesting a new loan from Edpyme Alternativa for the sum of 1,800 new soles, which will be allocated to investing in the purchase of merchandise (beauty products) and the acquisition of chairs, mirrors, hair-dressing machines, a dryer, and two counters.

Additional Information

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.
