Update on Uriel EnriqueThank you for supporting Uriel in his wholesale and retail price clothes sales business. With his previous Kiva loan he was able to buy cloth and jeans and he made trousers. His Kiva loan helped him to increase the working capital, sales and profits of his business. He says of Kiva investors: "I am very grateful to Kiva and the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation, I hope they will continue to help me."
He is currently applying for a Kiva loan, the first funding he applies for with the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation, which he will again use to buy, at wholesale and cash prices, cloth and other supplies to make jeans, because this is a fixed market and the season of high demand is approaching. Uriel must get stock ready for this season, which will make it a very successful one.

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.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.
