Update on Yulisa Del CarmenYulisa del Carmen, 40, is married and has three children who are all under her responsibility since they students at the university and high school, respectively. It makes her happy to know her children can get ahead and become professionals with better living conditions, without the limitations she grew up with. She was unable to get an education when she was young because of a lack of resources; so she could not realize her dream of being an educated woman with high academic skills.
Yulia del Carmen has always been a hard-working, responsible woman. Her business is selling toys, milk, and ice, together with her husband. Yulisa's routine consists of getting up early to sell milk and ice out of her house. Her husband also sells milk as a street vendor. Her toy business is located at one of the town's parks. She has been in business for 11 years now and it is growing little by little into a profitable, sustainable lifestyle for the family.
She plans to use the loan as work capital and to buy toys for the upcoming Christmas season. She wants to offer her customers better service and take advantage of the season to improve her income.

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.
