Update on Divino Nino Group

Divino Niño Communal Bank is made up of 11 members, 9 women and 2 men, mothers and fathers of 20 dependent children among them. They're from El Sauce, located in the northern part of the country. These people describe themselves as hardworking and responsible with a desire for personal self-improvement despite the difficulties they've had in life. Unfortunately they weren't able to continue their studies because they needed to work from a young age to help with the household expenses.

Thanks to her effort and desire to get ahead, Alba Justina is the coordinator of the bank. Her job is a "pulpería" located in her house. A pulpería is a small store that sells food items in small quantities such as packets of coffee, shampoo, or sauce, rice, eggs, packaged soup, beans, oil, bread, juice, and soda. Alba's work routine is to sell her products some 10 hours a day.

The goal of the loan is to invest in working capital and stock her business buying and selling food products for her grocery store so she can earn better income in the near future.

Divino Niño Communal Bank is grateful for the help that Kiva lenders give to low-income people and poor countries like Nicaragua so they have a means for a decent 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.
