Update on Mujeres Activas Group

This group consists of responsible individuals who engage in different commercial activities. All of them reside in the District of Vitarte and are members of the Communal Bank “Mujeres Activas” (Active Women).

One of the members is Sra. Jacinta. She is 53 years old, single, and has four children. Sra. Jacinta has been selling vegetables (potatoes, corn, onions, as well as groceries) for 26 years. By working at her small store every day, Jacinta is able to move forward by paying for her children’s schooling and the household expenses. Her greatest wish is to see her children become professionals. For this reason, Sra. Jacinta works very hard. The loan she is receiving will be invested in the purchase of more vegetables so that she can have more income.

Sra. Jacinta is the first person on the left-hand side (from the group’s perspective) who is wearing a purple blouse. She bids farewell with a hug to Kiva and says that she plans to accomplish all of her goals.

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.
