Update on Clara Emperatriz

Clara is 21 years old and single. She lives with her mother, her grandmother, and her two siblings. Clara left school so that she could devote her time to helping her mother with selling hamburgers and French fries every afternoon from their home. In the mornings, she and her cousin travel by bicycle with a basket filled with vegetables and sausages to sell.

Clara is requesting a loan from Fundación Campo so that she can purchase a two-door refrigerator for storing sausages and chicken since she currently sells these items. She will also buy meats, chicken, ham, sausages, and chorizo. The refrigerator she currently owns is not enough to preserve the merchandise she needs to store. Her mother uses the space to keep soft drinks that she needs when selling “pupusas”. Clara says that her dream has always been to open a store and that she is on her way to doing that.

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.
