Update on Ana Hilda

Ana decided to ask for a new loan, since the last one was a great help to her. She had the need to continue investing in her pottery-making business. She will buy things such as firewood, clay, and nacazcol (a black dye), as well as pay laborer(s) and transportation expenses.

She believes that the effect of the loans has been positive, since she has raw materials to make pottery during the winter. This helps her a great deal in her production and in managing the family income. She has the same number of children as before and her children are still in school. These loans are a great help because she can stock up on raw materials.

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.
