Bello Amanecer Group
Update on Bello Amanecer GroupThe communal bank 'Bello Amanecer' [beautiful dawn] is made up of nine members - [eight] women and a man; fathers and mothers responsible for 20 children. They come from Sauce in the northern part of the country, a place characterized by milk, junket and cheese production.
These people are hardworking, responsible and enthusiastic about self-improvement. Regrettably, due to a lack of economic resources, none of them could finish their studies as they were obliged to work from an early age. This is a situation they don't want for their children, so they fight to offer them better opportunities.
Thanks to her spirit and desire to succeed, the coordinator of the 'Bello Amanecer' communal bank is Juana Guillermina. She works in a pulpería [grocery store] located in her home. A pulpería is a small shop that sells grocery products in small quantities like sachets of shampoo, packets of coffee, bread, eggs, beans, sugar, milk, rice, oil, and tiste [a soft drink made from toasted cornflour]. It's an activity that she very much enjoys doing since it has been her way of life and that of her family.
Juana's work routine is to work about 12 hours offering products in her grocery store. The reason for the loan is to invest in business capital and supply her business in the buying and selling of daily- consumption products for the home, so that in the not-too-distant future she can obtain a better income. The Bello Amanecer communal bank thanks the Kiva investors for offering help to people with limited resources and in poor countries like Nicaragua so that they can have a dignified job.

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.
