Update on Sandra Marina

Sandra works selling used clothing and stuffed animals, offering her customers a variety of shirts, pants, shorts, skirts, as well as stuffed animals. She has 10 years of experience. She makes her sales on foot in her neighborhood and twice a week she goes to others to visit her customers that make up the majority of her orders. She buys her merchandise twice a month in one of the city markets, taking advantage of the opportunity to sell towels, sheets, bags, cosmetics, and any other article her customers request.

Sandra is requesting this loan for the amount of 15,000.00 lempira (Honduran currency) to invest in the purchase of shirts, pants, skirts, T-shirts, underwear, stuffed animals, and bags. Sandra hopes that PRISMA will support her since she needs to stock her business.

Sandra's dream is to have a shop where she can sell her merchandise to sustain her family.

Prisma Honduras, S.A.

This loan is administered by Prisma Honduras. Prisma is one of Kiva's first field partners in Central America and has funded over 2,500 entrepreneurs through Kiva since 2008. Prisma funds smaller than average loans for micro-entrepreneurs to help them grow businesses in urban and rural areas. To improve living conditions in Honduras, the organization strives to empower women who lack access to traditional financial services, and promotes solar panels to deliver clean, affordable electricity to rural areas. Through its four branches in southern and central Honduras, Prisma provides access to financial products to some of the poorest and most isolated communities in the country.

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.
