She has been in this business for many years, and it's been a very valuable experience that has allowed her to obtain better income. She sells from her house and has many customers, as people know that everything she makes is top quality and affordable, with the best and fastest service.

Due to this, she decided to increase production, but she lacks the capital that will allow her to invest in supplies. Therefore, she is requesting a loan from Integral that will allow her to purchase corn, beans, fresh cheese, pork cracklings, meat, vegetables, etc.
Dora Alicia has good payment references and is very responsible. She is pleased for the contribution and assures that she will pay off the debt, and at the same time, give her family a better quality of life.

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.
