Update on Mery Antonieta

Mery is taking out her third loan in the “Génesis” communal bank. She lives in Los Cerezos in the city of Cuenca, a cold climate place surrounded by exuberant vegetation that’s been a Cultural Heritage of Humanity since December, 1999. Its residents are kind, gracious and still preserve the culture and traditions of its peoples.

Mery’s 49-years-old, married and has had six children who are 25, 24-year-old twins, 23, 20 and 9 years of age. Three of her children work and help her out economically, one son is married and lives independently and one son is single and lives independently. Her youngest daughter is attending a local elementary school. Her husband is a car body repairman and has his own shop. The house she lives in is hers.

Mery works selling cosmetics, an activity she’s been in for the last three years. Since she’s an enterprising woman, two months ago she started a food business and to date is doing very well in it.

She used her previous loan to buy cosmetics to increase her inventory and had no problem repaying that loan; she made all payments as scheduled. She will use her new loan to fix up her food stand; she will buy tables and dinnerware. She likes the communal bank because good fellowship exists in it.

Additional Information

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.
