Update on Iveth Magadalena

Iveth, 28, lives with her husband in her house located in a community in El Jícaro, Galán, in southern Honduras. For several years she’s been selling snacks and meals like seafood soup, grilled meat, tacos, enchiladas, hamburgers, etc. Iveth’s business is home-based and her customers tend to be friends and people who pass by her house.

Iveth’s asking for a loan to buy bread, meat, lettuce, cheese, beans, rice, soft-drinks, etc. to prepare the various dishes she sells because she wants to expand the business introducing dairy products to better stock it since they are being offered to her at a good price and they are very good quality. With the loan’s support she intends to fill her financial need. Iveth’s dream is to buy a car to transport herself to do her purchasing.

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.
