Update on NelibertaNeliberta lives in a very calm community where corn is the main crop that is grown and there are many friendly people. Neliberta, 48, is a very smiling person. She has been married to Alejandro for 29 years. Together they have made a family with their four children, who are studying.
Neliberta has been raising oxen and pigs for two years. She started this business because she wanted to help her husband with their home expenses and their children's school expenses. She had also noticed, since she was a young girl, that the majority of people in her community had animals to sell. Neliberta has applied for another loan from this institution to buy more feed for the pigs and calves which she has at home. She says that she has not sold any of her animals, which is why she still has not earned an income, because she would like to raise many animals in order to sell them when she really needs the money.
She is very pleased because thanks to her previous loan, the number of pigs and oxen she owns has increased little by little. The only difficulty which she has now is the lack of space for her pigs, but she hopes to sell some soon so that the others are more comfortable and do not have any problems. Neliberta says, "I have not sold any animals because I want to save for my children to graduate. I have always supported them so they can achieve their dreams, and I wouldn't like them to leave halfway through." Neliberta is very happy and grateful for this loan with which VisionFund and Kiva have once again entrusted her.

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.

Photo from previous loan
Kiva allows our Field Partners to re-use the same photo for individual borrowers that have been posted on Kiva's website once before in a 24 month period, and we allow them to re-use group photos for up to 24 months, provided that 80% of the current group's membership is represented.
Taking, collecting, and uploading photos of borrowers is one of the most challenging elements of using Kiva for our Field Partners. In order to make Kiva easier for Field Partners to use, we have allowed them to post successive and concurrent loans without taking a new photo of the borrower if the criteria above are met.
