Dios Proveera Group
Update on Dios Proveera GroupThe 'Dios Proveerá' (God Will Provide) community bank has ten members who are all single mothers. Between them, they have 20 dependent children. They are all from Malpaisillo, in the north of the country. These women are responsible, hard-working people who have a desire to improve themselves. Sadly, they were unable to study as they lacked the necessary financial support and needed to work from a very early age in order to help out with their household expenses.
The coordinator of this community bank is Fresia, whose business is running a 'pulperia' which is located in her home. A 'pulperia' is a small store which sells food products in small quantities such as rice, beans, sugar, milk, eggs, juice, salt, and detergents. The purpose of this loan is to invest in working capital and stock her business so that, in the not-too-distant future, she can make better income.
The Dios Proveera community bank is grateful for the help that Kiva lenders give to people in poor countries such as Nicaragua, enabling them to earn a decent 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.
