Update on Georgina Ancelma

Georgina is 58, married and has adult children. She comes from Leon, which is in the west of the country. She is responsible, hard-working and has a desire to improve herself. In her free time she likes to enjoy the company of her children. Unfortunately, she was not able to study for a degree because of lack of funds, and so she had to work from a young age to help out with the household's costs. Thanks to her effort and her desire to get on in life, she works at making slabs and cement tombstones for cemetery graves. She works 10 hours a day in her business.

The reason for asking for the loan is to use the money for work materials for graves such as cement, lime, iron, sand and paint. She would like to increase her income in the near future. Georgina is grateful for the support given by Kiva lenders to allow people of few economic resources in poor countries such as Nicaragua to have a dignified means of 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.
