Update on Francia Ines

Thank you for supporting Francia, who bought merchandise such as notebooks, pencils, necklaces, and watches with her previous Kiva loan. She was able to buy more merchandise than usual and it was really to her benefit as it helped increase sales. That’s why she has this to say to her Kiva funders: “Thank you so much for your timely collaboration.”

Currently, she is applying for a new loan, with which she plans to buy household items, costume jewelry, stationery, and other merchandise. With these she plans to attract more customers and of course for Francia it helps her “earn some more”.

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.
