Update on Ana CenobiaAna has a sewing business and is very grateful for her previous Kiva loan because she got the opportunity of participating in the Kiva program in the Fundación and was able to increase the volume of her purchases of fabric, embroidery and sewing supplies. Her business has now improved and she’s managed to produce much more thus increasing her income. Her goal for later on is to hire employees and expand her productive process and with it the infrastructure of her customer base. She’s currently preparing to receive Christmas and New Year’s with a significant increase in dressmaking orders and this is why she’s calling on Kiva once again because she’ll use her loan to buy more raw materials and supplies to make elegant gowns to respond to market demand because that’s what her loan’s success is based on.

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.
