Update on Malvy Luz

Thank you for supporting Malvy Luz, who bought beauty products such as massages, powders, makeup and hair products with her previous loan. Her customers increased in number, because she was able to provide better services.

She currently has her own salon and her own home, which give her more stability and much satisfaction. This is her message to Kiva lenders: "Thank you very much and keep helping so I can fulfill my dreams".

She is presently applying for a loan, with which she will buy hair products to increase her supply for her business, which will supplement her income.

About Fundación Mario Santo Domingo

Fundación Mario Santo Domingo (FMSD) is a non-profit organization in northern Colombia dedicated to developing programs for the country’s poorest communities.

The organization also offers several non-financial components as part of this program, including training to help entrepreneurs start their own businesses.

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.
