Update on Rosa Ivania

Rosa sells cosmetics, perfume and jewelry. She’s been selling for many years and helps her family with expenses. She still has a daughter attending secondary school; her son is married. Her husband is a driver and they have always helped each other to be in better condition. For her, it’s always been a challenge in her life to have a business of her own and now with profits and loans she’s succeeded in starting a small Internet access service with two computers installed in her front entryway; it’s a beginning she hopes will be positive.

She will use this new loan to buy clothes, cosmetics and pieces of silver jewelry to continue offering a wide variety of products to her customers while at the same time informing them about the new service that she hopes will grow in order to buy more equipment and to have a solid business.

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.
