Update on Elder OmarElder Omar, age 24, is married and has a four year old son. He lives in the Mi Única Esperanza neighborhood in San Pedro Sula. Elder has over three years of experience repairing motorcycles. He used to work two days as an operator in a factory, and the other four days he worked in a motorcycle shop.
Over one year ago he decided to establish his own business in order to get improved income. He offers motorcycle repair services at customers’ homes, and he also works at his house and sells replacement parts. His customers are people who have routes (that is to say those who sell in an itinerant manner on motorcycles), private people, and employees of private companies. They contact him by telephone when they need his services.
The loan he requested previously helped him a lot to be supplied with work tools. His business has improved because he is also selling the replacement parts.
He is now requesting a second loan for 10,000 lempiras to stock up on motorcycle replacement parts to sell. He will buy things like saddles, gauges, rear view mirrors, chains, and sprockets, etc.
His dream is to continue growing in the business and providing good service. He will do this in order to get better income for his household and to give his family a better quality of life.
He is grateful for the opportunity and support he is being given.

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.

Photo from previous loan
Kiva allows our Field Partners to re-use the same photo for individual borrowers that have been posted on Kiva's website once before in a 24 month period, and we allow them to re-use group photos for up to 24 months, provided that 80% of the current group's membership is represented.
Taking, collecting, and uploading photos of borrowers is one of the most challenging elements of using Kiva for our Field Partners. In order to make Kiva easier for Field Partners to use, we have allowed them to post successive and concurrent loans without taking a new photo of the borrower if the criteria above are met.
