Update on Antonia SorayaAntonia’s a very active member of the “Mujeres con Visión” (Women with Vision) communal bank. She likes this communal bank because at each meeting she meets with her girlfriends and she can get out of her daily work routine. She lives in the city of Cuenca, a city with a rich history as well as beautiful colonial architecture. Its cuisine is a delight for locals and foreigners alike. Its people still keep their culture and traditions alive.
Antonia is 41-years-old, married and has had five children who are 20, 16, 14, and 10 years of age; her youngest is 6-months-old. Two of her children work, help with household chores and study; one in high school and the other one in the local little school. Her husband works as a private employee. She does not own a house; she rents.
Antonia works making and selling food in a small locale she has; she also sells cosmetics. These activities make it possible for her to improve her household’s economic stability and move her entire family forward.

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.
