Update on Mamacha Rosario - Huancarani Group

A group of neighbors and friends established the communal bank "Mamacha Rosario" in the district of Huancarani, province of Paucartambo in the department of Cusco. This group is comprised of people who are always looking for opportunities to get ahead who work hard on a daily basis to provide a better future for their children. The main businesses members are involved in are: food sales, wood furniture carpentry, craft sales, basic needs sales, fuel sales, beverage sales, small animal farming and others.

(Victoria is the one raising her hand in the photo). Victoria was born in the city of Huancarani, where she still lives. She is 43, married and has five children. Her main business activity is the sale of fuels such as gasoline and oil. She has a small fuel and lubricant shop, but she also farms and grows potatoes and barley. She buys the fuel at a pump near the city of Huancarani. For several years, she has been in business and it is going well because of the hard work she puts into it. On this occasion, Victoria is requesting a loan to buy fuels, lubricants and additives.

The members are grateful for the opportunity and committed to paying back their share of the loan on time. (The people pictured in the photos to the left arrived late for the group meeting).

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.
