Update on Rocio De Jesus

With her last loan Rocio bought discounted products from catalogs as well as cold drinks to sell, and also she invested some of the money in the purchase of natural products ordered by her customers. Now she is applying for another loan to buy beer in large volumes, washing machines, laptop computers, and small appliances to sell. She has orders for them, and since she started selling these items five months ago, sales have gone well.

Rocio says thank you to Kiva donors for the help she has received. They should always keep in mind that they are helping people who need a hand to help their businesses grow.

Rocio con su anterior credikiva compró productos que vinieron en sus catálogos con descuentos y también compró bebidas frías que vendió e invirtió nuevamente en la compra de productos naturales, bajo pedidos de sus clientes. En la actualidad está aplicando a un credikiva, con el cual comprará cervezas en mayor volumen, lavadoras, minicomputadores planchas y electrodomésticos menores, para venderlos, porque los tiene encargados y desde hace 5 meses que se inició en el comercio de estos artículos le ha ido muy bien.

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.
