Update on Anabell

A rhythmic humming of the sewing machine tells all the neighbors that they can bring any clothing they need sewing done on. Anabell greets them with a warm smile and a good disposition. She is 38 years old, married and has two children. She learned the art of sewing 16 years ago. She is an enterprising woman and an excellent mother. Her principal support is her husband and together they look after the education of their children, making sure they have a good future.

Anabell is requesting a loan to buy materials like fabric, thread and scissors. This is the second loan she has asked for from Kiva and MiCredito and she is grateful for the support given her as she has increased her production capital and made more income. As a woman with big ideas she plans to establish her own sewing workshop and at the same time buy another sewing machine. Her goal is to continue to work and produce with care and dedication.

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.
