Update on Tatiana Del Carmen

Dyes, shampoo, and hair products in general are what Tatiana is going to buy in order to have them available in her hair salon, since there are many customers waiting to alter their appearance for one of the most beautiful festivals in Colombia, "The Carnivals of Barranquilla". Tatiana's customers will show off highlights, hairstyles, colors, and carnival-style makeup. This is why she is taking out a Kiva loan, since with it she will buy hair glitter, hairspray, and dye. She says she is thankful for the help received from Kiva, and she hopes they continue to develop this noble work throughout the country. Her previous Kiva loan went very well for her. She was able to buy tools for her work such as a professional hair dryer and hair irons, and as a result today she offers a good service and she is much more comfortable working. Her sales have increased and her customers are much more satisfied.

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.
