Update on Fátima Del Socorro

Fátima is 32 years old and her partner works as a machine operator in order to cover the family's expenses. They have two children under the age of 9, and with a lot of hard work and effort have been able to maintain the costs of their home and of their children's studies. Fátima used to work in a factory but when her youngest son became sick she had to quit, and she now works as a domestic helper in a large home. She has used previous loans to improve her home, and this loan will also be used to add some rooms to the home. She needs to buy cement, sand, blocks, iron, zinc, and stones in order to do so. She would like to start the work as soon as possible, in order to put in a concrete wall, as one of the walls at the moment is just a sheet of metal and sometimes it gets very hot.

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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
