Update on Ana Lidia Del CarmenAna Lidia, 57, lives with her life companion, their children and her mother in her own house. She has a restaurant wherein she prepares a variety of dishes: soups, meats, rice, salads, pupusas [filled, grilled corncakes] and beverages, among others. She’s been in business for several years and has wide experience cooking which allows her to earn the best profits. She sells from home which is located in a very busy area. She’s acquired a large number of regular customers who prefer her because her dishes are the most delicious and they are made with quality raw materials under hygienic conditions. Prices are affordable and, above all, service is excellent.
Ana is an enterprising woman who is dedicated to her work; she’s always on the lookout for alternatives that will give her the opportunity of finding the best path to success and she will not rest until she reaches it.
She wants to make a new investment to increase production but needs capital to back her up which is why she’s asking INTEGRAL for a loan to buy basic grains, meat, dairy products, vegetables, etc. as well as to repair the pupusa grill. Ana has good payment references and she accepts the responsibility of the debt while at the same time has faith that she will provide economic security for her home.

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.
