Update on AdelaydaAdelayda, 41, is married with two children, one of whom is still studying and is under her responsibility. She is originally from a municipality in the north of Chinandega, which is located in the western part of the country. This region is very fertile, and its main industries are livestock, agriculture, gold mines, and commerce, among others.
Adelayda is a responsible and hardworking woman with a desire to continue improving. Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources, she could not study. She is from a very poor family, and she was only able to learn to read. From an early age, she had to work to help with the home expenses because she had younger brothers. She fights every day to succeed and give a better future to her daughter who is under her responsibility.
Adelayda owns a small grocery store where she sells all types of daily consumer goods, such as basic grains, candy, oil, rice, sugar, beans, bread, milk, frozen products, eggs, salt, detergent, and tomato sauce. She opens her business in the early morning and closes quite late at night to offer a better service to her clients. She opened this business 18 years ago with her own savings. One of her dreams is to see her daughter finish her studies, so that she can become a professional. She would also like her business to grow a bit more.
She has applied for a loan to invest in working capital and stock her business by buying consumer goods such as basic grains, frozen products, and candy, among others. Adelayda is very grateful to the Kiva lenders for the help which they offer to people with limited resources so that they can have a decent livelihood.

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.
