Update on Keny EdiliaKeny lives with her husband, who works a great deal so that he can give his family the best and make sure they have everything they need to live better. Keny works selling women's clothing like blouses, pants, tee shirts, underwear and more. She is a person who works hard to sell more every day, because she knows the importance of her contribution to the well-being of her home and her family.
Keny sells the clothing as a street vendor (she has several regular customers) as well as in her pupusa [grilled, stuffed corn tortillas] shop. She is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL so that she will be able to invest in her business, increasing the quantity of clothing and also acquiring a greater variety of colors, sizes, and designs. That way, she will be able to accommodate a greater range of personal tastes, thereby increasing her sales and earnings.

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.
