Update on Mireya Del Socorro

Mireya, 37 years old, is a single mother of three children, 18, 7, and 18 years of age. She is originally from León, a place that is located in the western part of the country. Unfortunately, because of the lack of economic resources, she could not study at a university. She is characterized as a hard-working, responsible person with good habits and a desire for personal self-improvement, which she has demonstrated in her previous loans in her on-time and complete payments.

Thanks to her effort, she sells general merchandise. This consists of selling pants, shirts, dresses, shorts, t-shirts, underwear, cosmetics, perfumes, and school items. She works about 10 hours a day on foot and through orders. She carries a load of about 20 kilograms when offering her products. She performs this activity with pleasure because it is her and her children’s way of life.

The objective of the loan is to invest it in the capital of her work and supply her business with merchandise, from which in the near future she will be able to obtain a better income. Mireya del Socorro gives thanks for the help that the Kiva lenders provide to people of limited resources and from poor countries like Nicaragua to have a dignified means of working.

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.
