Update on Ana

Ana with her previous Kiva credit purchased juice and soft drinks in addition to towels, sheets, tablecloths, and shoes to resell. With her credit she grew her business in other product lines and she is satisfying her current demand. The end of the year is coming and her working capital is not sufficient to respond to the seasonal demand for more sales and inventory turnover. She is now planning to request a new loan to buy soft drinks, shoes, and household products requested by her market segment. Her investment will be successful because she has a fixed clientele that are very faithful customers that can support her loan responsibilities. The return on this loan is a safe investment. She wants to tell her financers: “as in previous occasions, I am grateful for the trust placed in me and you can be sure I will not betray that trust.”

Ana con su previo credikiva compró jugos y refrescos en general además de toallas, sabanas, manteles y calzado por encargo. Con su credikiva amplió su negocio en otras líneas de productos y está satisfecha atendiendo la demanda existente. Se acerca el fin de año y su capital d etrabajo no resulta suficiente para responder a esta época en las cuales sus productos ptresentan un amyor movimiento en las ventas. Ahora planea acceder un nuevo credikiva y con el comprará refrescos y bebidas, calzado y productos domésticos que han sido solicitado por su segmento de mercado. Su inversión tendrá exito porque cuenta con clientes fijos, tradicionales que pagan muy bien y por eso a ellos le sirve con céditos, ubicando su inversión en un rango de recuperación segura. Ella dice a sus finaciadores: Como en ocasiones anteriores, agradezco la confianza en mi y pueden estar seguros que no los defraudaré."

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.
