Update on Ahuehuete GroupThe members of the group are continuing to carry out the same work as they have been. They are all grateful to Kiva and the Vision Fund (FRAC) for trusting in them; “We are thankful to you for helping us grow our business and support our families.”
Gina Rebeca is 39 and lives in a common-law marriage with her partner, who is a taxi driver. She is the mother of 3 children: 2 females, one of whom is married, and 1 male, who is also married. Gina Rebeca has requested the loan for maintenance on her taxis. She will adjust the engine of one and will service the other: changing the oil, brake lining, and tires. She started her work 16 years ago because some of her acquaintances invited her to be part of a group of taxi drivers, and it seemed like a good idea to her.
Her business is very important because it allows her to earn an income to purchase food, clothes, and shoes; in addition, it gives her the opportunity to save money. Gina Rebeca is known for offering her clients good service. This enterprising woman faces the increased cost of gasoline; nevertheless, she is very happy to receive the loan. With the loan, she will be able to adjust the engine of the taxi so it will be in good condition and can continue offering good service. Her hopes and dreams are that all her family can enjoy good health. She also hopes to continue working so that she can leave the taxi business to her children in the future.

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.
