Update on Concepción Valerio

With his previous Kiva credit, Concepción bought a hotdog cart and chairs, and the money even stretched to buy some of the raw materials and ingredients he uses to make his delicious products. He is now applying for a new loan to buy a chiller and work instruments and to adapt his kitchen to improve working conditions and buy ingredients, as Christmas is coming, and hopes to make a lot of money during this period, when there is a big increase in sales. To his backers, he sends the following message: "I am very grateful for my previous loan. I hope you can continue to support me so my business can keep growing."

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.
