Update on DalibethDalibeth is extremely grateful to the Kiva lenders for helping her and her family by supporting her business. With her previous loan, she was able to buy merchandise, clothing, and shoes to restock her inventory so that she could have more to sell each month. Since Colombian Valentine’s Day is approaching, her sales have been increasing. Her customers have placed many orders in anticipation of this occasion. Dalibeth’s outstanding receivable accounts represent her operating capital, which is why she is requesting another Kiva loan. She will use the money to buy women’s gifts, clothing, shoes, and accessories for the home. These items are suited for significant others, spouses, and friends to celebrate this holiday.
Her Kiva loan is expected to result in success since it will be invested in pre-ordered merchandise for one of the busiest seasons of the year. This will guarantee complete turnover of these products.

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.
