Update on Lydia JuniethLydia Yunieth, 32, is a young, single woman mother of three children who are 5, 9 and 12 years of age. The two oldest attend primary school. She’s sold merchandise for six years especially new clothes from place to place in markets and streets where she lives. She learned the occupation from her mother and started the business with her own funds. One of her goals is to stay in business and increase her inventory more since she sells on both credit and for cash and collects on her investment weekly or biweekly. She’s been improving it by means of loans she’s gotten and is thus able to provide a better future for her children. Lydia is very grateful for the help Kiva lenders have given people of scarce resources and to poor countries like Nicaragua.

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.
