Update on Rosa MacloviaFor some time now, Rosa has been a member of the communal bank "Sector 3 Marías". She lives on the outskirts of the Turi community in Cuenca, which has lush green fields due to its geography. The locals are hard-working, determined people who run businesses involving agriculture, livestock farming and commerce. They maintain the culture and traditions of the villages.
Rosa, 40, is married and has four children, ages 20, 17, 16 and 14. Her eldest two work and help out financially and also study through distance learning. The youngest two attend school in the city. Her husband works for a private company and they own their home.
Rosa raises animals, works in agriculture and also works as a domestic employee. All of these jobs give her economic independence and sometimes she even has time to spend with family, especially her children.
She used her previous loan to buy chickens which have given her a very good profit. She is requesting another loan to buy more chickens, animal feed and seeds for planting. She enjoys the communal bank because of the educational talks she receives, the cheerfulness of the other members and the camaraderie.

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.
