Update on Virgen De Guadalupe De Santa Clara Group

This is a group of men and women who have a lot of enthusiasm, and they are dedicated to getting ahead each day. The members of the communal bank "Virgen de Guadalupe de Santa Clara" include 10 people who work arduously in their businesses so that they can improve the quality of life for their families. Such is the case with Vilmar, 58, who is married and is the mother of 3 grown children. Every day, Vilmar works selling clothing for men, women and children. It all started because her sister has the same business, and she taught Vilmar and helped her to establish her own business. She has been able to get ahead with her family with the income from her business, and has been able to help her husband in building their home. With the current loan, she will stock up on more merchandise for her clothing business. Like Vilmar, every member of this group has a particular story, but what they share in common is the enthusiasm and desire to get ahead so that they can improve their businesses and provide for the welfare of their families.

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.
