Update on Maryuri MaribelIn the city of Manta’s Umiña neighborhood, the Banco Comunal Umiña meets every 15 day. Manta is known for its beautiful beaches and excellent restaurants, and is one of the most important Pacific ports in Ecuador and, indeed, in all of South America.
Maryuri, 36 years old, is a resident of Umiña. She is married and has three children, two young children aged ten and eight and a baby of six months. The two older children go to school. Her husband works in a factory in Manta.
To help support her family, she runs a store in their home in which she sells all sorts of products, including rice, sugar, cooking oil, detergent, grains, fruits, and vegetables, and also offers a service to put more money on people's cell phone for a little extra income. She works every day from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. or even later. Her children and husband help her when they can and do not have other obligations. She likes her work because it brings in an income and allows her to look after her children's needs at all time, since she doesn't have to leave the house. She's had her store for five years and it's going very well.
She is requesting another loan. Her store is successful because she has a solid customer base that comes to her store to shop every day. She has started selling ice cream for an Ecuadorean company, which gave her a freezer and products to sell. This new addition to the shop is bringing in more profits. She will use this loan to stock her store, buying rice, sugar, cooking oil, detergent, ice cream, and other staple goods. She has been a member of the Banco Comunal for five years, and she likes it because the first loan she received helped her start her business.
Her goals are to build a successful business and expand her store every day.

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.
