Update on Rosa Emerita

Rosa is 41 years old and is somebody who did not have the chance to study, as her parents did not have the possibility to provide her with an education. She has a husband who works in agriculture. They have three children -- two of them are in school and another one has his own home. Rosa only lives with her two children and husband.

Rosa has worked for three years selling tortillas in the market. As she could not find a job because she cannot read, she asked a friend for work and this friend gave her a tortilla stand. It takes her 25 minutes to get to this job, as she walks. Rosa also sells catalog products, which she offers after finishing work at the tortilla stand. She works at the tortilla stand from 6:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

She is requesting this loan to buy catalog products to sell, such as lotions, creams, clothes, and cosmetics. She places the orders and sells the products later to people who like them. What she sells most are lotions and hair dyes, which give her a larger income.

More information about this loan

This loan is designed for rural women in El Salvador. Loan amounts are much smaller than average and the field partner is not requiring any guarantee for this type of loan. The goal is to support businesses that will enable women to work from their homes or start flexible businesses, as many of them are single mothers and are the sole caretakers for their families.

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.
