Update on Consuelo Antonia

Consuelo Antonia was already granted a loan by the microfinance institution Fundación León 2000, in which she demonstrated her entrepreneurial spirit. She says that she had good sales over the previous months; however, in the low season she still must seek a strategy to boost her turnover. Her children are studying and she succeeded with great effort to make them progress. She gives them everything they need so that they don't have to neglect their studies, because one of Consuelo's dreams is to see her children complete their studies. She is currently applying for a loan to invest in her business. She will buy products, such as staple food, oil, corn, beans, soap, and other products in great demand.

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.
