Update on Silvia DomingaSilvia, 41, lives in the city of León. She's divorced and the mother of two children, ages 22 and 14; only her younger daughter studies.
She makes a living in commerce as the owner of a convenience store. She's grateful for the support she has received from Kiva that benefits her because she managed to have working capital to stock her store. Currently she's the one who primarily makes the purchases to stock her business, waits on the customers, cleans the shelves, and cares for her children. She's always active and ready to work and strive to have food for her family.
She needs the loan to buy rice, sugar, oil, detergent, bleach, soup, notebooks, pens, colored pencils, oatmeal, toilet paper, etc. She wants to see her store full of products requested by her customers so she can sell more.
One of her goals is for her daughter to have a university education and to improve the infrastructure of her house.
Está requiriendo el crédito para comprar arroz, azúcar, aceite, detergentes, cloro, sopas, cuadernos, lapiceros, lápices de colores, avenas, papel higiénico etc. Ella desea ver su pulpería llena de productos demandados por sus clientes y vender más.
Una de sus metas es lograr que su hija tenga una carrera universitaria y mejorar la infraestructura de su hogar.

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.
