Update on Nuvia Xiomara

Nuvia, 36, is married and has four children who are 12, 15, 16 and 19 years old; she lives with her family in a village in the municipality of Esparta, Atlántida.

Nuvia is a very enterprising woman. She has two businesses: one is raising and selling pigs and the other is a grocery store where she sells staples like basic grains, dairy products, packaged snacks, cleaning supplies, medicine, juice, soft-drinks, etc. She opened the grocery store five years ago and she’s been in the pig business for three years. Her great motivator is to earn income and to strive with the businesses so that she can provide her children with the opportunity of having an education and improving themselves.

She’s asking for her second loan in the amount of 25,000 Lempiras to buy more pigs to fatten up and sell during the end of year season and also to buy chicks to raise which are also in high demand in her community. The previous loan helped her to generate profits and to stay in business. Her goal is to generate good income for her family’s wellbeing.

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.
