Update on Ingrid

Ingrid used her previous Kiva loan to buy products like clothing and underwear that she sold using specialized catalogs that offered the best deals. During this period of time she’s succeeded in meeting all her customer demands and in improving her quality of life. She says to lenders: “In the first place, I want to give thanks because thanks to them I’ve been able to move the business forward.”

She’s currently applying for a new Kiva loan by means of which she’ll buy an embroidery machine, fabric and thread because she’s working in a veterinary supply and they are asking her for pet accessories like scarves, shirts and shorts that she can make herself to sell and generate income this way.

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.
