Update on Nelis Nohemy

Nelis is 35 years old. She lives with her husband in her house in a neighborhood of San Lorenzo in the southern part of Honduras. For 10 years she has been selling silk hammocks, thread hammocks, ropes, cords, pita fibers, pita fiber hammocks, etc.

Nelis's business is located on the edge of the Panamerican highway. Her customers are her neighbors, friends and people who are traveling in the area who are visiting from elsewhere.

Nelis is asking for the loan to buy more hammocks made from silk, thread, cord, pita fiber, rope, etc., so she can have a wider variety of products to offer all of her customers. She wants to buy wholesale for the Holy Week season because that is when her sales are the highest.

Nelis' dream is to expand her business and fortify it.

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.
