Update on Lesly Yalila

Lesly is an honest, hardworking, and responsible young woman. She lives with her parents and her two children, and she is a single mother and lives in southern Honduras. Her business is a snack shop and used clothing store.

Lesly is in need of a loan to buy used clothing; like pants, shirts, shorts, tights; meats, corn, condiments, etc. With this loan, she hopes to grow her sales by having more products and merchandise to fill the needs of the customers who visit her each day, since this is a very productive agricultural and industrial zone. With this increase in income for the household, she hopes that her family will live better.

In the future, Lesly hope to find a better physical space for the business to be able to sell products near a traffic roundabout since at this moment, her business does not have a fixed location, and this way she would be able to continue helping out her family, now that they are in dire straits. She also hopes that her children will finish their schooling and become good people with better opportunities for their future.

To improve living conditions in Honduras, the organization strives to empower women who lack access to traditional financial services, and promotes solar panels to deliver clean, affordable electricity to rural areas.

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.
