Update on Fatima Del Socorro

Fátima, 37 years old, continues to advance herself with her business selling cosmetics, jewelry and other items. She does not have children yet, so all of her income has been invested in her business and home repairs so that when children arrive in the future they will not want for anything. Fátima does not lack energy to continue working and growing, so she is requesting her eleventh loan from AFODENIC and Kiva. This time she will purchase new products from catalogs, a variety of clothing, shoes, school supplies, accessories, and materials to continue making her jewelry pieces. With this rhythm, she will continue working to be able to accomplish her dreams.

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.
