Update on Nuevo Amanecer Group

Group member Primitiva is 49 years old, married, and has two children through that wonderful relationship (Luis Enrique, 31, and Karla, 22). She is a Cusco native and still lives in the same city.

Primitiva has a small workshop in her home where she designs her products to later be sold and distributed in different retailers in the city. She has made a living from this business for 31 years, and it has done well.

With this opportunity, Primitiva requests a loan to purchase materials for work such as: dolls, thread, yarn, fabric, and decorations. (Primitiva is raising her hand in the photograph).

This group is made up of seniors and friends that form the communal bank "Nuevo Amanecer" (New Dawn) in the Cusco province of the Cusco state department. They are people who are constantly looking for opportunities to further themselves and who work daily to give their children a better future. The types of work these members do include: selling american clothes, selling crafts, selling glassware, and providing telephone services. The members, in general, are grateful for the given opportunity and commit themselves to completing payments for their dues at the established installment rate.

About Asociación Arariwa

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.
