Update on Las Animas Group

Josefina is a hardworking woman who is 43 years old. She is happily married to Erasto, and her husband works in the fields. They have 3 children: Cristian, aged 6, who is in pre-school, Erubey, 12, who is in 6th grade, and Argeni, who has a high school degree.

Josefina is content with her business, but she needs more merchandise. She is planning to invest her loan in products from the Jafra and Fuller brand, so that she will have actual products to display rather than selling only from a catalog. This way her customers can get to know the products. Josefina has had her business for about 9 years, and she wants to buy more products because her sales depend upon this and also because there are bonus gifts. She says that these gifts are a great help because they are good gifts, for example, refrigerators, blenders, etc.

Josefina is a member of the group "Las Animas," which has 9 members that will be mentioned below. They are: Leonarda, Gregaria Salome, Evangelista, Marena, Ma de Jesús, Ma Victoria, Rafaela, Gregaria, Miriam, and Josefina, and they specialize in the sales of: perfumes, chicken, flowers, vegetables, shoes, food, cosmetics and fruit.

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.
