Update on Blanca AdrianaBlanca Adriana is a single mother with three minor children. She is from the Cinandega municipality. She buys and sells general merchandise like cosmetics, shoes, shampoo, treatment creams, and household items. She also has a small bookstore where she sells products like notebooks, ink and graphite writing utensils, letter and legal sized bond paper, colored pencils, glue, flip chart sheets, and cardboard, among other things.
One of her dreams is to be able, in the near future, to strengthen her bookstore and sell other services related to this business. Therefore, the objective of this loan is to increase her inventory in both businesses. She will do this in order to take advantage of the sales during this Christmas season, which is when her customer demand increases.

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.
