Update on Girasol Group

This group is called "Girasol" [Sunflower] and is made up of three women, each of whom makes a living through her own business. They live in a small community called Ángel Albino Corzo.

Sahira was the group member who was interviewed. She is married to Sauce, with whom she has two daughters who are in college. She requested the loan to invest in the purchase of ingredients to make soft tacos. She has had this business for six months, and it is going well for her. She started the business to help her husband with their income, to give their family what they need most, and to get ahead together.

What she wants the most with her business is to be able to keep working and to obtain more income with the loan and to improve her taco business a little more.

The other members of the group are Magdai, who will invest in the purchase of merchandise to stock her grocery store, and Rosa Lidia, who will invest in groceries and her beauty salon.

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.
