Update on Roberto Antonio

Thanks for supporting Roberto in his fast food business. With his previous Kiva loan he bought bakery supplies, canned goods, and meat products because he had major capital to invest. His income and his quality of life have improved since he received his Kiva loan.

He sends a message to Kiva lenders, whom he thanks for trusting in him "because his loan has been a big help to him."

Currently he's applying for a new Kiva loan to buy beer and soda and to fix up his locale. With this he'll increase his working capital once again and create well-being for himself and his family in the future.

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.
