Update on San Lorenzo Group

The San Lorenzo group is formed by 11 humble indigenous people who have the desire to make a success of their lives and give a better future to their families. The representative of the group is Felicitas, a simple but hardworking woman who speaks Mixteco and is proud of her roots. Felicitas is 26 years old and is happily married to Beremundo, a conscientious and humble man. Felicitas tells us that she has been working selling bread for five years as it seems to her a good business and it allows her to earn a good income. What she most likes about making bread is kneading the the flour with the eggs and she also enjoys baking it in the oven. As well as this, she makes clay pots of different sizes. She has a son, Cristian, who is four years old. She loves him very much and works hard to provide him with a better future and so that he is proud of her. She asked for this loan to buy ingredients to make the bread, such as flour, eggs, milk, baking powder, butter and yeast.

The other members of the group are: Raymundo, who works selling Mexican snacks; Juliana, who sells cold cuts; Donaciana, who sells bread, Mara Antonia, who sells ice creams; Yesenia, who sells sweets; and Carmen, Mariana, Sixta, Tomasa and Patricia, who sell napkins. They are grateful to the foundation for helping indigenous men and women to achieve their dreams of bettering their lives.

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.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
