Update on Mónica Susana

Mónica is an active member of the “14 de Agosto” communal bank. She lives in Zhidmad Parish in Cuenca. Its topography is quite fractured which gives it picturesque scenery. Its people are proud to retain their culture and traditions. They work in agriculture, animal husbandry and many of them have various jobs in the city.

Mónica, 20, is a single mother of an 11-month-old son. She lives in her parents’ house and shares household expenses. Her father is a private employee and her mother works doing the household chores. The house she lives in is her parents’ property.

At present, she’s undergoing treatment for sinusitis and hopes that her health will improve. Her family is all enjoying good health for the moment.

Mónica is working as a cook in a restaurant in the city and at home she raises animals that her mother helps her care for when she’s at work. She sells her animals when they have gotten fat enough. She also works in agriculture. She grows vegetables that she goes out to sell two days a week in a local market. These activities make it possible for her to contribute to household economy.

She is repeating the loan. She used the previous one to buy vegetables and animal feed and earned good profits from this; she had no problem repaying the loan on the indicated dates. She will use the new loan to buy chicks, guinea pigs, seeds and manure to continue with her economic activities. She enjoys the communal bank because of the educational chats they give at each meeting.

Additional Information

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.
