Reyna Maria lives in the town of Ticuantepe in the neighborhood of Buenos Aires with her common-law husband and children. Her husband helps with the household expenses as he works as a driver for a private company. Reyna Maria sells used clothing out of her home on an order basis. Since the current demand from her customers is high she will use the loan to buy a selection of clothing for children, youth and adults. She also wants to experiment buying a collection of used footwear to see how it goes in an effort to expand her business.

She is grateful to Afodenic and Kiva for their support.

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.
