Update on Olga MaríaOlga is a cheerful, charismatic member of the Atenas communal bank. She lives in the Orquídeas sector of Cuenca, a city of great natural and architectonic beauty that’s bathed by four rivers; it’s a city full of kind, warmhearted people.
Olga was in a traffic accident some time ago where she suffered a head injury and had to have surgery; she came out of the operation very well though and is recovering more every day.
Olga is 51-years-old, married and has six children. Two of them are adults, one of her daughters is married and lives on her own, her four sons work and help out economically and two of them attend university; her youngest son is attending high-school in the city. Her husband is a driver by profession and provides transportation service in a taxi he owns.
She is a very tenacious, enterprising woman who has had a grocery store at home for some years where she sells products like oil, vinegar, basic grains, codfish, etc. She also sells kitchen supplies.
She used her previous loan to buy building materials to finish her house but despite all the health problems she’s going through she’s had no problem repaying said loan since she’s a very responsible woman. She will use her new loan to buy food items to increase her store’s stock. She likes the communal bank because the loans allow her to improve her economic activity and move her entire family forward.

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.

Photo from previous loan
Kiva allows our Field Partners to re-use the same photo for individual borrowers that have been posted on Kiva's website once before in a 24 month period, and we allow them to re-use group photos for up to 24 months, provided that 80% of the current group's membership is represented.
Taking, collecting, and uploading photos of borrowers is one of the most challenging elements of using Kiva for our Field Partners. In order to make Kiva easier for Field Partners to use, we have allowed them to post successive and concurrent loans without taking a new photo of the borrower if the criteria above are met.
