Update on Ana Rubidia

Ana, 41 years old, is married but her husband emigrated to the United States in order to be able to provide their children with a better quality of life. Their children, 5, 18, and 20 years old, live with Ana in El Salvador. Her oldest child is about to graduate from school.

Ana works in a mini-store in her home that she has had for about 15 years. She also works a small mill that she acquired 11 years ago, which was very expensive. Her 20 year old son is responsible for cultivating basic grains, and her other children help with daily sales. Ana performs these activities in order to improve her income and provide a better quality of life for her children.

The loan that Ana is asking for is to buy a graduation suit for her son, as he is about to graduate from school and she does not currently have the money for this expense.

Ana's dream is to see her children obtain university degrees, so they can one day support themselves. Additionally, she would like to make repairs to her house, so that her future grandchildren can have 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.
