Update on Gina Mariana

Artesanal Communal Bank meets every two weeks in Jipijapa Canton, known as "The Sultan of Coffee" for its extensive crops of incomparably flavored coffee, its cuisine, and the warmth of its residents. Gina, 48, lives here. She's married and has two children, ages 20 and 13, who are students in a university and a school. Her husband is a driver.

Gina makes a living selling all types of clothing so she can earn something on her own to be able to get ahead in her household. She sells door-to-door and also at home, where she has a small space. She makes her rounds three days a week for a few hours, leaving things on credit with her customers and collecting every two weeks. She goes to Guayaquil to buy her merchandise whenever she needs to. She has made a living in this work for more than 10 years and it's going very well for her.

She's getting another loan with the institution because this is how she can finance her business, which produces the money for her to pay for her children's educational expenses, which is the most important thing for her.

She's going to use this loan to buy more merchandise such as pants, blouses, t-shirts, and children's clothing to take advantage of this season, which is very good for her sales.

She has been in the communal bank for more than 14 years and she likes it because of the help they've given her during this time. Her dream is to see her children finish their studies and become good professionals.

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.
