Update on Ana Elizabeth

Ana is 41-years old. She went to school until high school. She is married and has two children who are both in high school. Ana has been employed in an electrical company for 22 years. She learned to do this job on her own because when she left school she started looking for work to help her parents. The job is 30 minutes away and she travels by bus to the office. She then goes out in to the communities to do light meter readings and delivery of electricity bills. She works from Monday to Friday, from 8AM to 4 PM.

Additionally, Ana wants to increase her income, so she is planning to start taking care of cattle. She will use the funds to buy cows because she wants to work in this business. With the support of the loan and her family, she intends to implement it. Ana’s dreams are that her children do well in their schooling, that they do not have any problems graduating and that they become professionals.

More information about this loan

This loan is designed for rural women in El Salvador. Loan amounts are much smaller than average and the field partner is not requiring any guarantee for this type of loan. The goal is to support businesses that will enable women to work from their homes or start flexible businesses, as many of them are single mothers and are the sole caretakers for their families. Women who receive this type of loan also receive training on entrepreneurship, business management and budgeting.

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.
