Update on Poetas GroupBeatriz, 29, has an 11-year old daughter in primary school. Beatriz is a member of Poetas (Poets) group and says that they chose the name because of the place they hold their weekly meetings. She comments that she likes to work as part of a team with the people in Poetas because all are hard-working and responsible and come on time when needed. They also get together and support other members if he/she is unable to collect the money for the payments.
Beatriz has a beauty shop but only about a week ago she changed to another location since the rent was very high and she didn’t have enough money left to purchase the necessary supplies for her services. She says that she is requesting a loan from Vision Fund (FRAC) to buy assorted dyes, hair clippers, acetone, material for acrylic nails, liquids for making bases and items such as different size curlers. Beatriz normally purchases her products in various stores in Mexico City where she pays less and thus earns more.

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.
