Update on Toribia Susana

Toribia is 36 years old, married, and has two children ages 5 and 16. She is a client who finds herself in her second sequence with the institution. She lives in the Las Lomas zone and dedicates herself to varnishing, detailing and finishing of chairs. Her workshop is in her own home where she lives with her children and husband, who dedicates himself to carpentry making doors and kitchen cabinets. The loan is destined for the purchase of lumber and a planing machine. Toribia lives in her own home, which is still under construction. In the future, she plans to finish building her home and therefore bring more comfort to her family. The whole family works, supporting each other in the making and selling of the furniture. Over time, she would like to have a larger workshop to be able to employ more laborers and therefore other youngsters will also learn the carpentry trade. Things went very well with the previous loan and, for this reason, she continues investing in her business.

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.
