Update on Evelia

Evelia is thirty-seven years old, is married, and has four children (two girls and two boys). She has been working in making and selling tortillas for three years and some months, at a locale located on the sidewalk close to the community market. Before, she worked at PROCAFE, and then with UNE for eight years. Today, she sells her tortillas and her husband makes a living in metal structures work.

The loan that she is requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy cabbage, sauce, and vegetables in order to make her stuffed tortillas. In the month of February, the feast days for the patron saint of her town are celebrated. Therefore, she will set up her tortilla stand in order to obtain higher revenue so that she can sustain her family. With the profits, she also will be able to improve her home.

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.
