Update on Benita LissetteThe food smell seduces us when we enter Benita's house. Benita is a 32-year old woman who has worked as a food seller for 9 years. She has a 6-year old son and works everyday knowing that his child's education is in her hands. Everything started with a few orders from close friends. After a while and with some savings, she got the house ready to sell food together with her mother and partner.
Benita's expectations are high, as she feels she can keep growing and increasing the variety and quantity of the products she sells. This is why she needs a loan to buy meat, rice, chicken, veggies and sodas, among others, to serve a good amount of clients and increase her stock. She plans to promote her product in a food buffet in the center of her city. Her goal for now is to improve the condition of her dining room, making it bigger.
Las expectativas de Benita son altas, pues siente que podrá seguir creciendo y subiendo la variedad y cantidad de su producto. Es por esta razón que necesita de un préstamo para comprar carne, arroz, pollo, vegetales, gaseosas, ente otros productos para tener suficiente producto para abarcar una buena cantidad de clientes, que inmediatamente le permitirá incrementar su inventario. Entre sus planes está dar a conocer su producto en el centro de la ciudad, en un bufet de comida. Por el momento le gustaría mejorar las condiciones de su comedor, ampliando el espacio del local.

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.
