Update on Angélica MaríaThe members of the “San Ignacio de Colon” communal bank meet every two weeks in San Ignacio in Colon Parish in the city of Portoviejo, a place known for its hardworking people who are dedicated to agriculture and animal husbandry.
Angélica, 29, lives here. She’s in a common law relationship and has three children who are 13, 12 and 5 years old. The older ones attend secondary school and the youngest is in Kindergarten. Her husband is an auto mechanic.
She’s a housewife who in order to earn her own income sells all types of clothes door to door. She works three days a week especially during the morning when her children are at school. She sells on credit and collects payment on the weekend. She has many customers that place orders with her because she gives them easy payment options. She’s been in business two years and does very well.
She is repeating the loan since the previous one was very helpful; it yielded good profits that she used to pay expenses generated by her children’s return to school. She hopes to use this new loan to buy pants, shirts, blouses and children’s clothes to stay in this business that gives her so much satisfaction.
This is her 6th loan with the communal bank and she likes it because all the loans have improved her life. Her dream is to continue moving forward with her business.

Está repitiendo el crédito ya que el anterior le fue de gran ayuda, el mismo que le dejo muy buenas ganancias las cuales utilizo para los gastos que genero el ingreso de sus hijos a los centros de estudio donde ellos acuden, espera este nuevo crédito para comprar pantalones, camisas, blusas y ropa de niños y con esto seguir en su negocio que le da muchas satisfacciones.

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.
