Update on Mariana Luz

Mariana is 48 years old and lives with her two children in her own home. She owns a carpentry shop where she makes and sells furniture, chairs, tables, benches, and other things. Her business is set up in her home and has been running for several years. She has gained a lot of experience from it and it allows her to make the best profit. She has lots of customers because she sells her items at affordable prices and her service is also excellent.

Mariana wants her business to expand, but she needs capital, which is why she is requesting a loan that will allow her to buy wholesale wood, nails, paint, varnish, etc. Mariana is hopeful that she will be able to pay off her financing and at the same time give her family the quality of life that they deserve.

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.
