Update on Sandra VanesaSandra Vanesa continues determinedly with the development of her own business selling clothes. Her husband directly supported the construction of the house because he is a brick layer. Because of this they have saved themselves the labour cost which is very expensive.
Both of them are working hard to professionally educate their 11-year-old daughter.
Through the first loan that they received from AFODENIC, Sandra was able to whitewash the walls and change the roof of her house. This time she hopes to construct the front of their house, as well as lay a ceramic floor that she already has, for which she needs to buy construction materials like: blocks, cement, iron, doors and windows.

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.
