Update on Elizabeth BeatrizThe communal bank "Mujeres Unidas" ["Women United"] meets twice a month in Jipijapa canton, a canton known as the "Coffee Sultaness" for its extensive plantings of coffee, which has an incomparable flavor. Jipijapa is also known for its cuisine and the warmth of its people.
35-year-old Elizabeth lives here. She is separated and has three children, ages 19, 16, and 9. The two older children are in secondary school and the youngest is in primary school. Elizabeth’s older daughter is now married but still lives at home.
To make a living and so that her children never lack anything, Elizabeth works selling food. More than seven years ago, she set up a small eatery in her house. There she prepares delicious dishes every afternoon. Her specialty is fritada with roasted plantains or patacones, which is very appetizing to her customers. She works alone and sometimes with the help of her children, when they aren't busy. This is how she supports her children by herself.
Elizabeth is now seeking another loan as the earlier one resulted in a larger income, greatly benefitting the family. She will use the loan money to buy rice, meat, fish and other supplies for the dishes she makes. She has been in the communal bank for ten years and she likes it for the financial help it provides.
Her goals are to continue with her business and to provide her children with a good education.

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.
