Update on Yina Aracelly

Yïna, 34, is a single mother of two children, one in secondary school and the other in elementary school, whom she has gotten ahead with her job. She has worked for 16 years as a nurse assistant.

She has improved her house with her own effort and loans that have allowed her to improve her living conditions. For this she is grateful to Kiva, which has given her this opportunity for loans.

She is requesting this loan with the goal of finishing construction on her home. With the previous loan she managed to change the roof of the house and plaster an inside wall, leaving unresolved the plastering of three inside walls of the house and the outside ones. So little by little she is achieving her goal.

Her biggest dream is to finish her house and improve her living conditions so her children grow up in a pleasant and decent home to live in.

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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
