Update on Maricela

Thank you for supporting Maricela who, with her previous loan, was able to buy school materials and miscellaneous items to stock up her business. Her income increased because the products generated attention and interest from customers who wanted and bought the products. Now, Maricela and her family are better off and Maricela feels more satisfied. Maricela is currently applying for a Kiva loan that she will use to buy disposable crockery and cutlery and other general products. With the new stock, she will have merchandise that has a high turnover and Maricela will be earning ever more, making her Kiva loan a success.

Gracias por apoyar a Maricela, quien con su anterior credikiva logró comprar útiles escolares, artículos de miscelánea, con los cuales surtió su negocio. Sus ingresos se enfrentaron, porque impactó la atención, el interés, el deseo y la acción de compra de su clientela. Hoy, ella y su familia, tienen un mayor bienestar y esto la hace sentir mucho mas satisfecha. En la actualidad Maricela está aplicando a un credikiva, mediante el cual comprará artículos de tocador, productos desechables y variedades en general. Con ello tendrá una mercancía que rota rápidamente, mientras ella gana cada vez mas y esto es justamente el éxito de su credikiva.

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.
