Update on Aurora E Jesus

"Thank you for lending to me and helping me" is the message that Aurora sends to her Kiva lenders, as she has previously succeeded in buying shoes and many beauty products that she was able to sell and earn income from with her last loan. Now, she's hoping for a new Kiva loan with which she will buy personal hygiene products and brand-name shoes, as she prepares for the end of the year. This is the season when in the past her customers have been looking for merchandise that they can only buy at the time because it's when they get their bonuses and advances. That's also exactly what makes her investment pay off as expected.

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.
