Update on Reina Adelina

Reina is 32 years old. She has been married for 17 years, and has three children, aged between 3 and 13. She lives in San Juan, Lempira. Her husband is a driver.

For eight years, she has been selling a variety of clothing, such as blouses, pants, children's clothing, T-shirts, underwear, skirts and sandals. She lives in a rural village where there are no clothing stores; this is the reason for starting her clothing businesss, and sales have been good. She sells though orders for home delivery, and at her home.

Very hard-working, she also grows coffee, from which she earns other income.

She has applied for her third loan, with the current one being for 25,000 lempiras. She has invested it in her business, keeping it stocked and increasing her sales. With the present loan, she will buy children's clothing, blouses, T-shirts, pants and sandals for increasing her inventory and obtaining more income.

Her dream is to see her children graduate and fix up her house with the earnings she gets. She is very grateful to ODEF and to Kiva for the opportunity provided.

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.
