Update on Terla VadezaTerla is 32 years old, a single mother of one son, and is a kind woman who is very dedicated to her work. The only obstacle she faces is the health of her son who had complications at birth and needs to have constant treatments. Terla works selling groceries and stationery. She also sells shoes, boots, and sandals. She began buying pigs with some money she was given, and using the earnings, started buying sandals and shoes of different styles. The business began ten years ago and she still dedicates herself to the same work. The work schedule is from 5:00 am to 5:00 pm. The only disadvantage is the time that she invests in the business is time she cannot devote to her son. The loan that Terla seeks is needed to invest in merchandise like: sandals, and shoes for men and lotions. With the help of this loan she will be able to stock her business and this will help her to increase her sales and earn more in order to buy medicine for her son. Terla's goal is to improve the condition of her business and enlarge the store. This is her second line of credit with FAMA and has always made her payments on time.

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.
