Update on Nila MaríaNila has been part of the “La Paz” credit group for some time now. She likes it because of the unity and companionship that exists since it’s a very organized group and everyone has the same objective which is to improve the quality of life at home. She lives in the city of Cuenca, a place that enjoys natural and architectonic beauty; it has a varied cuisine that captivates all who visit it. This is a city that’s also the birthplace of great writers and sports figures.
Nila is 48-years-old and in her marriage has had 7 children. Three of her children are married, three work and help her out economically and her youngest who is 8-years-old attends the little local school. Her husband works in pottery making and they own the house they live in.
Nila works every day making pottery, work she’s been doing for the last 25 years. She started in this business thanks to her husband who knew this art and she now participates in this family business.
She used her previous loan to buy raw materials and earned very good profits. She’s repeating the loan since she’ll use it to buy paint, clay figurines and clay she needs to manufacture her crafts.

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.
