Update on Felicita Del Socorro

Felicita del Socorro is 51 years old. She is a single mother with four children. She is from León, which is located on the western side of the country. She is characterized as being a hard-working, responsible woman who strives for personal improvement. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her family. Unfortunately, she was never able to complete a university degree as she felt obligated to work from an early age to help with household expenses.

Thanks to her efforts and her desire to get ahead, she has been able to maintain, as her main economic activity, a small grocery store where she sells small quantities of food products such as rice, beans, sugar, milk, bread, and eggs, and also sells detergent, oil, juice, soft drinks, and matches. She works in her shop for 12 hours a day. She would like to use the loan to invest in working capital to supply her business in the buying and selling of food products so that in the near future she will be able to obtain higher profits. Felicita is thankful for the help that the Kiva lenders give to people with scarce resources and poor countries such as Nicaragua to have a decent working environment.

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.
