Update on Julieth Alcira

Julieth invested her Kiva loan in a variety of merchandise that she showed in her catalogue. With special discounts she managed to get her customers' attention, interest, desire, and purchases.

Her sales have increased since she got her Kiva loan, so she is applying for another loan to buy women's merchandise such as accessories, clothing, and footwear, to respond to her growing clientele and take advantage of seasonal sales to increase her profits.

She sends the following message to Kiva lenders: "I am very grateful for the help I have received. I hope you can continue supporting us, other enterprising people who only need resources to prosper and get their families ahead."

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.
