Update on Reyna Isabel

Reyna, age 35, lives in the La Esperanza village. This is a rural community in the Colon department. She is married, but her husband lives outside of the country. She has two children, and they both go to school.

The financial activity that generates income for her is a small grocery store. That is where she sells everyday food products (butter, grains, rice, soup, ketchup, toilet paper, salsas, beans, and salt, etc. and some novelty products).

She has had her business since 2008, and she works very hard all day. This has allowed her inventory and her sales to increase. Last year she requested a loan for 5,000 lempiras, which she used to increase her inventory. Now her business is stocked more, and she is getting more income for the household and her children’s expenses.

She is currently requesting her second loan from ODEF and Kiva for 7,000 lempiras. She will use the loan to stock her business more. Her dream is for her business is to, little by little, become a mini supermarket. That way her income will be better.

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.
