Update on Dora Morena

Dora, 52, lives in her own house with her son. She has a store where she sells staple goods such as beans, milk, eggs, and bread, among others. She has had this business for many years. This has given her the sales experience she needs to achieve the best profits. Her business is located in her home, which is in a very busy area. She is well-known among her neighbors in the area and she has a large clientele because she keeps her store stocked.

She would like to expand her business and make a new investment, but she needs capital to do so. Therefore, she has applied for a loan which will allow her to buy all she needs for her store. She is sure that she will pay off her debt and she is also confident that she will give her family a better quality of life.

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.
