Update on Doris Consuelo

Doris is 46 years of age. She is married and has two children aged 26 and 30, who are married. She lives with her husband and nephew in a neighborhood in the suburbs of the municipality of San Pedro Sula.

Four years ago Doris started her own fast food business, selling small fried pastries filled with meat and rice with cabbage and pickle, fried chicken with fried plantains, and sodas. Her produce is sold on the street through various sellers who she has contracted. She makes a great contribution to generating employment for people in her community, who sell the food for her.

Doris has requested 8,000.00 Honduran lempiras to buy supplies to prepare food, such as corn flour, meat, vegetables and packaging products, among others. The loans help her to increase her production and family income. Her goal is to have her business in her home as well as on the street. She would like to thank ODEF and Kiva for the opportunity given to her to improve her business and her family’s income.

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.
