Update on Ana Rosa

Señora Rosa is 28 years old. She is married and lives in her own home, together with her husband, in the town of San Lorenzo, in the southern zone of Honduras. She has worked for more than five years in her business, which is selling thread hammocks, silk hammocks, and rope hammocks, of all types and sizes.

In her business, Doña Rosa's sales are made from Monday to Sunday. Her customers are people who travel to the capital of Honduras, since her business is located on the edge of the paved road that leads to the capital of the republic.

Doña Rosa is applying for the loan to buy materials such as threads, plastic cord, scissors, colored silk ropes, etc., to make hammocks and thus stock her business more. With the support of the loan and the investment that she makes in her business, she expects her sales to grow and therefore improve her income. Her wish is to continue working with Prisma.

Doña Rosa's dream is that her sales will improve and that she will have good customers who are punctual.

Additional Information

Prisma Honduras, S.A.

This loan is administered by Prisma Honduras. Prisma is one of Kiva's first field partners in Central America and has funded over 2,500 entrepreneurs through Kiva since 2008. Prisma funds smaller than average loans for micro-entrepreneurs to help them grow businesses in urban and rural areas. To improve living conditions in Honduras, the organization strives to empower women who lack access to traditional financial services, and promotes solar panels to deliver clean, affordable electricity to rural areas. Through its four branches in southern and central Honduras, Prisma provides access to financial products to some of the poorest and most isolated communities in the country.

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.
