Update on Elizabeth De Jesús

Elizabeth is a merchant and has a sixth grade education. She is single, with no children, and lives with her parents, a sister and a nephew. For six years she has been running a food stall at a community school. She learned the business from her mother who has a store at home. Her work schedule is from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon and the stall is located about five meters from her house.

She is requesting a loan to pay for her mother's eye operation and to stock her small business. Her dream is for her mother to regain her eyesight; and in the future Elizabeth wants to build walls around her food stall because now what she has up is metal sheeting.

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.
