Update on Dominga

Dominga has a store in which she sells basic necessities in the Ticti Sud area which is located far away from the city of Cochabamba. Her business is based in her home since she owns the house she lives in. Most of her children are abroad so she stayed at home on her own with one of her daughters, who is separated from her husband. Dominga was left supporting her daughter. Currently her only source of income is selling basic necessities. Although her store is well stocked, there’s always something missing to meet all customer demands. The money she will be granted will be used to buy stock for the store. She is very cheerful and hard working and is grateful to the institution for the support provided.

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.
