Update on Ketty Aracely

The Umiña cooperative bank meets every 15 days in the neighborhood of Umiña, located in the city of Manta. This city is known for its beautiful beaches, for its cuisine, and for being one of the most important ports of the country, as well as of America, because of its location on the shores of the Pacific. This is where Ketty, 44, lives with her husband and their 7-year old daughter who is in school. Her husband works abroad.

With the goal of generating her own income and, with these funds, meeting her and her daughter’s expenses, she dedicates herself to selling all types of clothing, silver jewelry, and Avon and Yanbal catalog products (beauty supplies, cosmetics, perfumes, and women’s accessories). She works every day, mostly in the mornings, as this is when it’s easier for her to make her rounds. She delivers on credit and charges every 8 days. She goes to Guayaquil to buy the merchandise, and also imports from abroad. She has been in this business for more than 7 years, and things are going well.

She is repeating the loan because the credits help her supply her business. Her enterprise is very good, and the earnings generated by the previous loan helped her with expenses related to her small daughter’s education and for the household. Currently, she hopes to receive this loan to buy silver jewelry, clothing, perfumes, costume jewelry, creams and other products to continue with her business. She has been in the cooperative bank since its initiation, and likes it because of the help the bank provides.

Her dream is to provide her daughter with all the best.

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.
