Update on Jaqueline Esmilda

Jaqueline is 25 years old. She is single and has 2 small children. She is originally from Sauce, a place in the north of the country. She can be characterized as hardworking and responsible with a great personal desire to overcome challenges. She works day in and day out to offer a better future to her little children. Unfortunately, due to a lack of economic resources, she was not able to study for a degree and she had to work from a young age to help with the household expenses.
Thanks to her efforts and her desire to get ahead, she has a grocery store in the town. A "pulpería" (the name for this type of store) is a small store that sells groceries in small quantities such as rice, beans, sugar, milk, bread, detergent, eggs, juices, and sodas. She runs the store for 12 hours a day, offering all her products. The goal of this loan is to have business capital and supply her store so that, in the not-so-distant future she can have a better income. Jaqueline is grateful for the help that Kiva lenders offer to people with scarce resources and to poor countries like Nicaragua so that they can have dignified work.

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.
