Update on Gloria De Los Angeles

Gloria is an entrepreneurial woman, 50 years old, who has been supporting her family with her business, a small neighborhood store which she has operated for the past 7 years. She is once again requesting a loan so that she can invest in her business, buying rice, beans, sugar, cooking oil, canned products, soft drinks, juices, desserts, snacks, personal care items and cleaning supplies. She will continue to offer these products to her customers, who are chiefly her neighbors. Since this is the only means of survival for herself and her family, she is grateful to Kiva and AFODENIC for the support they provide to her year after year.

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.
