Update on Blanca Nidia

Blanca is 46 years old, has no children, and is from Sauce, an area located in the northern part of the country. She is known for being hardworking, responsible, and with a desire for personal success.

Unfortunately she was not able to study for a career due to lack of resources and she had to go to work at an early age.

Thanks to her efforts and desire to get ahead, she has a small grocery store where she sells foodstuffs, such as rice, beans, sugar, cooking oil, juices, soft drinks, eggs, and detergents. She works 10 hours a day out of her home, with a 20 kg bundle, which she does with lots of enjoyment, since this is how she earns a living. She will use the money from this loan to stock her store with foodstuff so that she can have a better income in the near future. Blanca is grateful to the Kiva lenders who provide persons of limited resources in poor countries such as Nicaragua with a dignified source of work.

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.
