Update on Lorgia Del Carmen

Lorgia is a native of León, is married, is the mother of three children, and is a business woman. She began in her business through a tortilla making enterprise, and with time she began diversifying and started a general store. She sells clothing by order, as well as makeup, and that is why she is asking for a loan, which will help her to buy merchandise to sell. She stopped the tortilla making business because of health problems. Today she works full-time in her general store. She is asking for a loan in order to supply the store with basic grains, cleaning products, bread, eggs, fruit, personal care products, cosmetics, diapers, toilet paper, juices, and soft-drinks. She would like to convert her general store, to the greatest extent possible, into an all-purposes shop where her clients can find everything necessary for their homes.

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.
