El Triunfo Group
Update on El Triunfo GroupThe El Triunfo village bank has eight members: seven women and one man. All of them are parents with children in their care. They are from Sauce, in the north of the country. They are hardworking and responsible people who strive to better themselves. Unfortunately, their lack of financial resources prevented them from studying, and they have had to work from a young age. Thanks to their spirit and their desire to live a better life, the bank's leader is Graciela, who sells bread door to door carrying a twenty-kilogram basket on her head. This loan will supply baked goods for her to sell, including cakes, pastries, rolls, and other treats. El Triunfo is grateful for the help that Kiva's lenders offer people with few resources and poor countries like Nicaragua so they can have a dignified way of earning a living.

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.
