Update on Mirna Antonia

Mirna, 47, is married and has four children; two girls and two boys. For about a year she’s been working making and selling pupusas [filled, grilled corncakes]. Since she started out selling at a gastronomic festival her sales have increased.

The loan she’s asking Fundación Campo for is to buy a grill to make pupusas. With this investment she’ll have two grills. Since demand has increased, one grill isn’t enough and now she’ll be able to make them quicker. Her goal is to continue participating in the gastronomic festival and improving the food stand she has at home to generate income that will make it possible for her children to complete their university studies.

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.
