Update on Jenny Elizabeth

In a town called Tierra Amarillas in the Rocafuerte canton, the members of the "Mejorando El Futuro" loan group meets every fortnight. This area of Ecuador is known for its farming work, as many here work growing short cycle crops.

And it is here that 26-year-old Jenny lives. She is married and has two children who are eleven and six years old respectively. They attend the local school while Jenny's husband is a businessman.

Jenny is a very plucky woman who likes to earn her own living through her work, and to use it to help her husband with household costs. Jenny works producing and selling delicious sweets. The sweets sell well as many shop-owners come to her home to buy the sweets to take away and sell in different parts of the province. With this work, Jenny earns her own income to help her children to get ahead in life.

Jenny is taking out another loan as it will help her to make a profit and, with these profits, she can buy necessary items for her children. Jenny has used her profits before to buy necessary items for her children's education. Jenny will use this loan to buy sugar, flour and other items for preparing sweets. Jenny has been with the loan group since its creation and she likes it because of the benefits of working with the organisation. Jenny's dreams are to give her children the best life possible.

Additional Information

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.
