Update on Rosa Nelly

Rosa is a member of the “El Crédito” communal bank. She lives in the city of Cuenca, a city with a cold climate. Thanks to its fractured topography, this city has great scenery where nature can be enjoyed. Its city center blends the colonial with the modern and its residents still retain its culture and traditions.

Rosa, 60, is married and has six children; four of them are married and live independently, one works and helps out economically and her youngest who is 17-years-old attends a local high-school. Her husband helps her in her business since he’s retired. She does not own a house; she’s a renter.

She has worked selling all types of clothes for 20 years. She sells at home to her neighbors and acquaintances. She also works making costume jewelry. She works doing these things because it’s work that makes it possible for her to cover household expenses and to get ahead with her entire family.

She used her previous loan to buy clothes and she repaid it on the proper dates. She will use her new loan to buy clothes too for her demanding clientele. She likes the communal bank because they’ve become like a second family and they discuss various interesting topics at each meeting.

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.
