Update on Daisy Esperanza

Daisy Esperanza, age 43, is a single mother with three children. She lives in a suburban neighborhood of San Pedro Sula.

Doña Daisy has been making and selling corn tortillas for more than 10 years. She has established customers in her community and works very hard each day. Her business enables her to support her family since she does not receive financial assistance from the father of her children. By selling tortillas, she is able to generate the income she needs.

Daisy has already requested five loans from ODEF. Her current loan is for 12,000 HNL and the money will be used to buy supplies, such as cornmeal and firewood, for making tortillas that she can sell. Part of the loan will be used to buy filler material for the patio of her house to prevent puddles from forming when it rains.

Her goal is to maintain this business so that she will have income to pay for her children’s studies and to provide them a decent home. She is very grateful to ODEF and to Kiva for the financial support they have provided.

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.
