Dalila sells clothing and other items. This work got her out of debt several years ago. This work allowed her to improve her finances and come out ahead with her whole family.

She invested her previous loan in buying clothing, sheets, comforters, etc. since she already had several orders. Now she is going to invest her new loan in clothing for the Christmas period that is approaching. She had no difficulties in the settlement of her previous loan because she made the payments on the corresponding dates. She likes the communal bank because of the comradeship of the group and the educational talks that they receive at each meeting.

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.
